CBS has given its first series orders for the 2020-21 season to Silence of the Lambs sequel Clarice, a reboot of ’80s series The Equalizer, and Chuck Lorre multi-cam comedy B Positive.

All three projects were considered favorites to get ordered considering the former two are based on IP and the latter comes from prolific producer Lorre. B Positive in particular helped its cause by getting its entire pilot filmed before the wave of production shutdowns hit the TV industry, obliterating pilot season. 

News of these pickups comes two days after CBS renewed 15 scripted series while cancelling Tommy, Broke, Man with a Plan, and Carol’s Second Act.

  

In addition to Breeds, the series stars  

  

In addition to Latifah, the series stars Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black), Liza Lapira (Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23), and Tory Kittles (True Detective).

    

In addition to Middleditch and Ashford, the series stars Kether Donohue (You’re the Worst) and Sara Rue (Malibu Country).
