Mythbusters Pair Plan CBS Spy Thriller Series

The “Mythbusters” duo of Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage have set up a drama series at CBS that is inspired by their real-life experiences.

The story revolves around two Hollywood special effects artists who are recruited by the CIA to complete seemingly impossible covert ops missions by creatively using the most basic tools from their craft.

Currently untitled, the project has received a script commitment from the network and is being produced by MGM Television. Savage and Hyneman will executive produce along with Gail Berman and writing duo Lilla and Nora Zuckerman (“Suits,” “Fringe”) who will pen the script.
