CBS orders Limitless remake

US network CBS is moving forward with a TV adaptation of popular Bradley Cooper movie Limitless.

Based on the 2011 film of the same name, Limitless follows a man who discovers a mysterious drug that enhances his human senses but is forced into using it to solve weekly cases for the FBI.

The programme comes from CBS TV Studios in association with Relativity Media and exec producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci’s company K/O Paper Products. Cooper is also an exec producer on the project, which will be written by Craig Sweeny.

The news comes in the same week CBS ordered a pilot for a TV version of action movie Rush Hour.

The network has also ordered pilot for Code Black, a medical drama set in a busy emergency room in Los Angeles. Based on Ryan McGarry’s 2014 feature documentary of the same name, the programme hails from ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios.

Meanwhile, comedy pilot The Half of It, from Mike Gibbons and CBS Television Studios, has also landed a greenlight at CBS. The comedy follows a newly divorced father who gets to keep half of his stuff — more than he ever had when he was married.

Other CBS pilot orders include comedies Angel From Hell, from writer and exec producer Tad Quill (Scrubs), and an untitled project from writer Dan O’Shannon (Modern Family, Cheers, Fraiser).
