CBS orders pilots from John Cusack and David Marshall Grant

By Kyle Johnson,

CBS has put in pilot orders for two untitled shows, one coming from John Cusack and the other from David Marshall Grant.

Grant, who has worked on Smash and Looking, will be the executive producer on a project brought from CBS Television Studios, reports Variety.

Grant also wrote the pilot script. The untitled show is a medical drama based around quadruplet siblings who were once reality TV stars as they grew up.

According to Deadline, the show is based off an Israeli program that lasted two seasons called Ran Quartet. The siblings are three brothers and one sister. This is the second attempt to bring a show based upon Ran to the small screen.

The other pilot is from Cusack, who will also executive produce with producers Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly. They already have an upcoming straight-to-series show through ABC.

Cusack will not be in front of the camera for the drama set in Wall Street. The untitled drama was written by Justified's Taylor Elmore and Ben Cavell. The script was based off a story that Kevin McCabe and Cusack wrote together.
