Perhaps due to Kryptonite poisoning, CBS has decided it is not going forward with Tom Welling’s Section 13 TV show project. The Tiffany Network put the Covert-Ops drama into development, back in December 2015. In addition to starring, the Smallville star was executive producing with Carla Kettner, who was attached as writer.
Section 13 was described as focusing on “a CIA black ops officer-turned-private contractor (Welling) who, in the wake of a personal tragedy, joins a covert organization devoted to carrying out the most difficult high-stakes assignments.”
A reader wrote to TV Line‘s “Ask Ausiello” feature and asked Michael if there was any news on Section 13. He responded, “There is news, and it’s… not super. Matt Mitovich asked around, and the Smallville vet’s espionage-themed CBS project is sadly not moving forward.” Take care before clicking that “responded” link. The “Ask Ausiello” column is full of spoilers for current TV series.
What do you think? Were you hoping CBS would order Section 13 as a TV series? What kind of project do you hope Tom Welling does, next?
