CBS Orders 3 Pilots - Rush Hour, Super Clyde and Joe Time

Share on Reddit

Following Minority Report‘s order by Fox, the other series remake of a blockbuster movie this season is getting a pilot green light. CBS has picked up Rush Hour, co-written and executive produced by Bill Lawrence. It was one of three pilot orders at the network, along with Greg Garcia’s single-camera comedy Super Clyde and Bill Wrubel’s multi-camera Joe Time.

Hour-long action comedy Rush Hour, which had a pilot production commitment, was written by Cougar Town co-creator Lawrence and the series’ executive producer/showrunner McCormick and executive produced by the New Line Cinema movies’ director Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian. Staying close to the premise of the original movie, the show centers on a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police officer (played in the features by Jackie Chan) assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky black LAPD officer (originally played by Chris Tucker) who has no interest in a partner.

Super Clyde, from CBS TV Studios and Garcia’s Amigos de Garcia, is a remake of the pilot Garcia originally did at CBS in the 2013 cycle. That season, the first under his overall deal at CBS TV Studios, Garcia received two pilot orders from the network, one for Super Clyde and one for The Millers. The Millers, a multi-camera multi-generational sitcom, was a safer bet, while the single-camera, high-concept Super Clyde — about a meek, unassuming fast-food worker finds his calling, was considered more of a long shot.

Bill Wrubel’s Joe Time (formerly The Good Life), from WBTV, had a pilot production commitment. Written/executive produced by former Modern Family executive producer Wrubel in his first season after leaving the Emmy-winning ABC/20th TV series for an overall deal at WBTV, centers on Joe, a family man who struggles with the fact that everyone around him is pursuing their dreams and enjoying their lives more than he is.
