The comedies are Friend Me and Partners, both multi-camera. Friend Me follows two male friends who move from Indiana to Los Angeles to begin new careers working at Groupon. Partners, from Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan and loosely based on their relationship, is about two male friends, one gay and one straight, both of whom are in committed relationships.
Dramas ordered include Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller as a modern-day Sherlock Holmes solving crimes in New York City, with Lucu Liu and Aidan Quinn co-starring. Vegas (formerly Ralph Lamb) stars Dennis Quaid as a Las Vegas-based "cowboy sheriff" in the 1960s.
Police drama Golden Boy is about a young police officer whose breaking up a drug ring leads to his meteoric rise to police commissioner. And Made in Jersey is a legal drama about a 20-something female attorney with a blue-collar background who takes on her more polished colleagues at a top New York law firm.
CBS has also picked up reality competition series The Job from executive producers Michael Davies and Mark Burnett, where people compete to win their dream jobs. Lisa Ling will host.
