If your television actually explodes with comedic energy next fall, we now know who will be responsible: Robin Williams will star in a single-camera comedy produced by David E. Kelley. CBS officially picked up the "Crazy Ones" pilot on Monday (Feb. 4), along with two dramas, "Anatomy of Violence" and "Intelligence."
"Crazy Ones" will star Williams as an advertising executive working alongside his daughter. It is very much expected that Williams will spend a great deal of time improvising in this comedy. In addition to David E. Kelley (who wrote the script), "Crazy Ones" is executive-produced by Bill D'Elia, Jason Winer, Dean Lorey, John Montgomery and Mark Teitelbaum.
"Intelligence," from writer Michael Seitzman, is set at the United States Cyber Command and centers on a unit surrounding a single agent who has a microchip planted in his brain. Because of this chip, the agent can access the full electromagnetic spectrum (including radio waves). Yes, »
