Telemystery: CBS Orders Two Crime Drama Projects

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

The Telemystery pilot updates seem to coming at a fast and furious pace, so we're combining today's news into a single post.

CBS has ordered a project set in New Orleans titled The Big Easy. (Not the most original of titles; a crime drama of the same title, based on a movie of the same title, aired on USA Network in the mid-1990s. We suspect this is at best a "working title".) The series is centered on a paranormal investigator, who has a dark side. (Don't they all.) The project is being written by Liz Garcia and Josh Harto, formerly of Memphis Beat.

CBS has also ordered Darkness Falls, a police procedural of sorts, in which an FBI psychologist and a homicide specialist "journey into small communities around the country to solve the darkest, most twisted single murders." The folks behind the CBS drama Criminal Minds will develop the project.

Deadline first reported on these projects (here and here).
