CBS greenlights two drama pilots

'Eastmans,' 'Contractor' join network's slate

CBS added two more drama pilots to its development slate Wednesday.

The network picked up medical drama "The Eastmans" and the Shawn Ryan-produced "Confessions of a Contractor."

"Eastmans," from writer-executive producer Margaret Nagle and Warner Bros. TV, is a medical show centered around a complicated family of doctors.

It marks the third medical drama pilot for CBS this pilot season. The network, which has been focused on finding a new medical franchise for fall, also ordered "Three Rivers," about organ transplants, and the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Miami Trauma," about trauma surgeons.

"Contractor," from 20th TV, is based on Richard Murphy's book of the same name and centers on a successful L.A. contractor.

Murphy wrote the pilot and serves as co-exec producer with Jeff Okin and Paul Green. Ryan will exec produce.
