CBS has ordered the drama pilots Ultra, based on the comic book series of the same name, and The Way, a supernatural thriller.
Ultra is a fast-paced action-adventure about a single city-girl superhero balancing the demands of greatness with her love life and social calendar. Joan of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall wrote the script.
The Way centers on a powerful New England mob clan that uses witchcraft to further its business enterprises and conquer enemies.
Separately, ABC has ordered two drama pilots, A House Divided and Twenty Questions.
A House Divided explores an escalating conflict between a Midwest farming community and the US government that sows the seeds of what will be the next civil war in present-day America. Twenty Questions centers on an idealistic young State Department employee who inadvertently stumbles onto a deadline conspiracy to undermine the United States.
