CBS orders 4 dramas to series including Magnum PI reboot & racially charged drama from Ava DuVernay

Magnum P.I.

Cast: Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, Stephen Hill

The Red Line
After a white cop (Noel Fisher) in Chicago mistakenly shoots and kills a black doctor, we follow three vastly different families that all have connections with the case as the story is told from each perspective. (Noah Wyle plays a high school teacher who's husband is killed by the cop)

God Friended Me
Questions of faith, existence and science are explored in this humorous, uplifting series about an outspoken atheist (Brandon Micheal Hall) whose life is turned upside down when he is "friended" by God on social media. Unwittingly, he becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him.
Cast: Brandon Micheal Hall, Violett Beane, Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie, Joe Morton

The Code
The military's brightest minds take on our country’s toughest challenges—inside the courtroom and out—where each attorney is trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator—and a Marine.
Cast: Anna Wood, Ato Essandoh, Phillipa Soo, Raffi Barsoumian

As reported previously, CBS also ordered comedies "Fam" starring Nina Dobrev, "Welcome to the Neighborhood" starring Cedric the Entertainer, and an untitled comedy starring Damon Wayans Jr. executive produced by Harry Styles partially inspired by his life.
