CBS on Monday gave a pilot order for the Robin Williams-starring single-camera comedy Crazy Ones from David E. Kelley (L.A. Law, Ally McBeal, Boston Legal). It will feature Williams as an advertising executive whose daughter works at the agency. The network also ordered Anatomy of Violence, an FBI drama from Homeland showrunners Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa, as well as Intelligence, a drama about a U.S. Cyber Command agent "with a very special gift, a microchip that has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum."
