The CW has brought on Michael Bay to produce an hourlong drama, Outsiders.

The drama will follow a quirky sociology professor with an almost savant-like expertise in subcultures. He is partnered with a young but uptight female detective and the pair solve crimes involving youths and subcultures in Los Angeles.

The network bought the script from writer Adam Glass, who was recently a writer and producer for the hit series Supernatural.

No production date has been released.
