CBS is already moving onto the television season for 2014-2015, despite the 2013 season just getting underway. The eye network has a number of new series still yet to debut, but it's putting its faith in Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan by picking up his new detective series.
Deadline announced yesterday that the currently-titled Battle Creek, which will be executive produced in tandem with House's David Shore, is going straight to series, possibly in the "limited, event" vein.
The show centers on two detectives with very different world views who are teamed up. They must answer the question: is cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true – it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources? It's another show that is evolving CBS past its usual, formulaic procedural crime drama niche, which still being in the same genre.
