CBS has greenlighted to pilot Trooper, a character-based procedural drama from Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Warner Bros. The project, written by Aron Eli Coleite (NBC’s Heroes), centers on a common-sense mother-turned-New York state trooper. Coleite, Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are executive producing, with Bruckheimer TV’s KristieAnne Reed co-executive producing. Trooper was one of the first major sales this season, landing a put pilot commitment in August. It was a very active selling season for Bruckheimer TV with four significant commitments, including three put pilots for Trooper, a Navy SEALs drama at ABC and a 1980s wrestling show at NBC. The pickup for Trooper brings the company back in series contention after sitting last pilot season out with no production order for the first time in a decade. Coleite’s fortunes have risen fast since the August sale of Trooper to CBS. In the past few months, he saw his feature spec The End sell to Warner Bros and land on the 2011 Black List, while his pitch Hellbent went to New Regency.
