CBS Orders David Boreanaz 'Seal Team' Drama, 'S.W.A.T.' and More for Fall
CBS announced its orders for fall TV today, including four new dramas and two comedies.
David Boreanaz, fresh off Fox's recently-ended "Bones," is jumping networks to headline "Seal Team," a drama following the elite unit on dangerous missions. Former "Criminal Minds" star Shemar Moore stars in "S.W.A.T.", a television version of the 2003 movie.
On the comedy side, CBS already ordered the "Big Bang Theory" spinoff "Young Sheldon." The two other new comedies are the family-oriented "9JKL" and the time-shifting "Me, Myself, and I."
