Marc Webb To Direct CBS Drama Pilot ‘The Code’

Marc Webb has been tapped to direct and executive CBS’ drama pilot The Code.

Written by Limitless creator Craig Sweeny based on a story by him and Craig Turk, in The Code, the military’s brightest minds take on our country’s toughest challenges – inside the courtroom and out – where each attorney is trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator – and a Marine.

Sweeny serves as executive producer/showrunner. Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman executive produce via there Timberman/Beverly Prods. for CBS TV Studios.

Webb will direct and executive produce The Code via his overall deal at CBS TV Studios. This marks a reunion for him and Sweeny as Webb also directed the pilot for the CBS/CBS Studios drama Limitless. The other three previous pilots that he has directed also have gone to series, Fox’s Lone Star, Showtime/CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and, most recently, CBS/CBS Studios’ Instinct last pilot season.

Webb is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content, and Attorney Jamie Feldman
