CBS has given a pilot order to Widow Detective, a drama written by David Hubbard and produced by CSI maven Carol Mendelsohn. The project, from CBS TV Studios and Mendelsohn’s studio-based production company, centers on a decorated police detective who, after losing three partners in the line of duty, becomes surrogate husband, lover and father to their families. Hubbard and Mendelsohn are executive producing with Mendelsohn’s development executive Julie Weitz. Widow Detective is one of several projects Mendelsohn’s company has in contention at CBS, including a Rifleman reboot.
