CBS has given a put pilot order for “The Things They Left Behind,” a supernatural procedural drama series based on a Stephen King short story of the same name.
The story was originally published in 2003 and is set in the aftermath of 9/11. The action follows an unlikely pair of investigators carrying out the unfinished business of the dead.
Seth Grahame-Smith will write the script and will executive produce along with David Katzenberg and Greg Berlanti. Grahame-Smith and Katzenberg are already attached to another high-profile King adaptation, the two-part film adaptation of “IT”.
