CBS doesn’t announce its fall schedule till Wednesday afternoon, but it has already greenlit six projects to series for 2008-2009:
“The Eleventh Hour” is about a scientist and a government agent who investigate unexplained phenomena. It is not to be confused with Fox’s just-greenlit “Fringe,” about a scientist and a government agent who investigate unexplained phenomena. Here’s how to tell them apart: “Eleventh” is from “Armageddon” producer Jerry Bruckheimer; “Fringe” is from “Armageddon” co-writer J.J. Abrams.
“The Mentalist” is about a psychic (Simon Baker) who solves crime. It’s not to be confused with “Medium” or “The Dead Zone.” It's from writer-producer Bruno Heller ("Rome").
“The Ex-List” is about a woman who learns from a psychic (presumably not The Mentalist) that she has already met her true love, and must retrace her romantic footprints. It's from writer-producer Diane Ruggiero ("Veronica Mars").
“Harper’s Island” is a thriller about a group of friends who reunite for a wedding. It's from writer-producer Ari Schlossberg ("Hide and Seek," "Lucky 13").
“Project Gary” is about a divorced fellow trying to balance family and romance. It stars Jay Mohr and Paula Marshall. It's from writer-producer Ed Yeager ("Still Standing").
“Worst Week” is about a couple dealing with in-laws. It's from writer-producer Matt Tarses ("Scrubs").
