CBS has just announced that they have picked up two drama pilots NY-LON from ABC studios and Mythological X from 20th Century Fox. According to Variety, the network has also picked up the drama presentation Can Openers from Sony Pictures TV and screenwriter Elle Johnson.
NY-LON is based on a six-episode U.K. series that aired on Channel 4 in fall 2004. The drama centers on a man and a woman who attempt an extremely long-distance romance (between New York and London) after a chance meeting in London.
Mythological X centers on a woman who discovers through a psychic that she has already dated the man she was destined to married. The woman then embarks on a mission to find 'the one' by combing through all of her old relationships. The drama will be executive produced by Jonathan Levin and writer Diane Ruggiero.
Can Openers will be executive produced by Jim Serpico and centers on a woman in her twenties as she enters a seven-year neurosurgical residency and encounters a competitive atmosphere along the way.
CBS has not announced when they plan to air the pilots for NY-LON, Mythological X and Can Openers.
