Let the onslaught of May televison announcements rage on!
This time, it’s CBS stepping up with three new drama series orders of the season that come with some serious “buzz” cred. First up, there’s supernatural drama Evil from The Good Fight‘s Michelle King & Robert King, Dick Wolf’s next franchise chapter FBI: Most Wanted, and legal drama All Rise (fka Courthouse) from writer Greg Spottiswood.
Now here’s a look at the three new drama series:
