CBS + RIDLEY SCOTT+ TONY SCOTT = "NUMBERS"

CBS Orders Mid-Season Drama ´┐ŻNumbers´┐Ż About a Mathematical Genius Who Helps the FBI Solve Challenging Crimes

Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz Star in the First Television Drama Series From Multi-Academy Award Nominated Director Ridley Scott and Tony Scott

CBS has ordered NUMBERS, a mid-season drama about an FBI agent (Rob Morrow, "Northern Exposure") who recruits his mathematical genius brother (David Krumholtz, "The Lyon's Den") to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles.

The two brothers take on the most confounding criminal cases from a very distinctive perspective. Inspired by actual cases, the series will depict how the confluence of police work and mathematics provide unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing criminal questions.

NUMBERS also stars Peter MacNicol ("Ally McBeal"), Judd Hirsch ("Taxi"), Sabrina Lloyd ("Sports Night") and Alimi Ballard ("Dark Angel") and represents the first dramatic television series from three-time Academy Award nominated director Ridley Scott ("Black Hawk Down," "Gladiator") and Tony Scott (Emmy Award winners for the "The Gathering Storm").

Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Alex Gansa and Brooke Kennedy are the executive producers for Scott Free in association with Paramount Network Television. Cheryl Heuton, Nick Falacci and David Zucker are co-executive producers. Hueton and Falacci co-created the series and wrote the pilot.
