“X-Men” filmmaker Bryan Singer has signed on to direct and executive produce the pilot for the thirteen-episode drama series “Battle Creek” at CBS.
The story follows a detective named Russ (Dean Winters) and an FBI agent named Milton who team up to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan.
“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan penned the 2002 original spec on which the drama series is based.
The setup for this series will be the same as it was with FOX’s “House” – David Shore will serve as show runner while Singer will exec produce the series and direct the pilot.
