TV mega producer Dick Wolf is basically synonymous with NBC, thanks to his decades-spanning work on the network’s Law & Order franchise, and his efforts to make a TV show about every single public service in the Chicago metro area. Now, though, Variety reports that CBS is finally getting a Dick Wolf show of its own, with Wolf’s new drama F.B.I. landing at the network.
Oddly enough, the series—centered on the presumably wacky shenanigans that happen at an FBI branch in New York—is still being produced by Wolf’s old friends at NBCUniversal’s Universal TV. But CBS apparently bit at the chance to get some of that procedural magic of its own, even committing to a 13-episode first season without bothering to wait for a pilot.
Wolf’s been a little more willing of late to branch out from the peacock’s loving embrace; his TNT franchise, Cold Justice, has been running since 2013, and he’s got unscripted projects in the works right now at A&E and Oxygen.
