CBS orders 'Rush Hour' pilot
CBS has officially given Rush Hour a pilot order, along with orders for comedies Joe Time and Greg Garcia’s Super Clyde, which was initially ordered to pilot back in 2013.
Based on the New Line Cinema feature film of the same name, Rush Hour follows a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police officer who is assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky African-American LAPD officer who has no interest in a partner. Cougar Town co-creator Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick will write and executive-produce the one-hour action dramedy with original director Brett Ratner along with Arthur Sarkissian and Jeff Ingold.
Super Clyde, which initially starred Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint, is being redeveloped, though still focuses on a meek, unassuming fast-food worker who finds his calling. Garcia will write and executive-produce.
Joe Time, written and executive-produced by Bill Wrubel, follows a family man who struggles with the fact that everyone around him is pursuing their dreams and enjoying their lives more than he is.
