Rene Balcer Joins CBS Pilot ‘The Ordained’ As Executive Producer/Showrunner

11 March 2013 6:30 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Law & Order veteran Rene Balcer has come on board CBS‘ drama pilot The Ordained as executive producer/showrunner. Balcer has a history with the project, having helped the creator, journalist-turned-author Lisa Cullen, with conceptualizing the idea when she first conceived the show in 2011. Back then, Cullen took out Ordained as a pitch but it didn’t sell. Cullen went on to write it as a spec, developing it with her management company, The Shuman Co. The spec was sent out to TV studios last summer, landing at CBS TV Studios where studio-based Frank Marshall came on board as executive producer. After the script was picked up to pilot by CBS, the producers looked for a showrunner. Because of Balcer’s previous involvement, he was a top choice and was available, leading to his deal on the project. He will be executive producer alongside Marshall, Larry Shuman and A.B. Fischer. »

TCA: What to Expect from Bates Motel and Da Vinci's Demons

5 January 2013 1:30 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We're still not sure how Dread-worthy Starz's "Da Vinci's Demons" is going to be, but with David Goyer at its helm, we'll keep covering it for a while at least. Here's an update from Goyer at the ongoing Television Critics Association's winter press tour along with more on A&E's "Bates Motel."

Per Deadline, Goyer said that his first historical period project would be about 85% historically accurate. “He had a pretty incredible life we didn’t have to embellish as much as you’d think,” Goyer said of Da Vinci, portrayed by Tom Reilly. Goyer pointed out that though Da Vinci is best known as an artist and scientist, he was also thought to be a great horseman.
