CBS is working blue … again. According to Variety, the network is producing a police procedural pilot from Blue Bloods executive producer Brian Burns.
The series, titled 40-Year-Old Rookie, will be about a “former criminal defense attorney who, in order to clear his conscience and be on the right side of justice, becomes a 40-year-old rookie cop working alongside his son in the same precinct.”
CBS has plans to begin production early next year.
From Brian Burns, speaking to Variety:
The lead character has a very Jerry Maguire moment and realizes his life is unfulfilling as an attorney despite the money.”
