CBS drops bomb plot in CIA drama

Publish date:

The pilot episode of new CBS drama The Agency has been pulled in the wake of the terrorist attacks.

The pilot, which had been sent to TV critics nationally, featured a potential bomb threat in London and a reference to Osama bin Laden.

CBS executives will air a different episode entitled "Viva Fidel" when the show premieres on Sept. 27. The replacement episode features the CIA uncovering an assassination plot on Cuba's Fidel Castro. - Joe Schlosser
