Deadline is reporting that CBS has opted to cap freshman drama Wisdom of the Crowd at its initial 13-episode order, neglecting to exercise their option for additional episodes. The series will remain in production until the middle of December and retain its Sundays at 8:00 time slot through the end of its order.

Based on the Israeli series of the same name by Shira Hadad & Dror Mishani and developed for American television by Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife), Wisdom of the Crowd follows billionaire Jeffrey Tanner (Jeremy Piven) as his obsession with finding out who killed his daughter manifests itself into Sophe, a newly developed crime crowd sourcing app.

In addition to Piven, who is one of a litany of celebrities under fire for sexual harassment allegations, Wisdom of the Crowd stars Richard T. Jones (The Wood), Monica Potter (Parenthood), Natalie Tena (Game of Thrones), Blake Lee (Mixology), and Jake Matthews (Bosch).

With the decision on Wisdom of the Crowd in, CBS has made a ruling on every new fall show they premiered this year. While cop drama SWAT, military drama SEAL Team, and Big Bang spinoff Young Sheldon received full seasons, family comedy 9JKL was only granted a partial back order and Bobby Moynihan starrer Me, Myself & I was pulled off the schedule entirely. The only fall newbie yet to have its fate decided is ABC political comedy The Mayor, which was given a three script order that has yet to translate into either episodes or a capping.
