CBS Goes Mental for New Crime Drama

CBS has picked up its first post-strike pilot, The Mentalist, a crime drama about a mentalist who uses his mad skillz to help police solve crimes. Speaking to the Eye's faith in the project, veteran director David Nutter — whose pilot creds include Supernatural, Traveler, and most recently Sarah Connor Chronicles — is in talks to direct the script penned by Rome cocreator Bruno Heller.
