CBS Orders J.J. Abrams’ ‘ Person of Interest’ and Kat Dennings’ ‘Two Broke Girls’

JJ AbramsAnd the marathon of pickups and cancellations continues over at CBS. First up, they’ve order J.J. Abrams’ crime series, Person of Interest, which stars Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson of Lost fame as a “presumed dead former CIA agent who teams with a mysterious billionaire” in New York whose goal is to stop violent crime. It sounds pretty average, but it’s got J.J. behind it, so it might worth a shot. Also receiving a thumbs up is Two Broke Girls, a show that comes from Sex and the City creator Michael Patrick King and stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as two twenty-somethings navigating the rough New York waters in the pursuit of their dreams. Comedian Whitney Cummings is attached as a producer and the project looks like little more than a multi-camera version of the beloved SATC series.

Fear not, I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ve heard from CBS for today.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
