CBS Picks Up 'Bang,' 'Power' Plus Four Dramas
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Four dramas, a comedy and a game show were among CBS' first wave of series pick-ups at the start of upfront week on Monday.

Among the dramas: the Jimmy Smits-led "Cane" (formerly "Los Duques"), about a multi-generational Latin American family in the rum business; "Moonlight" (formerly "Twilight"), which stars "The Shield's" Alex O'Loughlin as a private investigator who is a vampire; "Swingtown," an ensemble drama set during the 1970s about the impact of sexual liberation; and the musical "Viva Laughlin," about a family man (Lloyd Owen) who dreams of opening a casino in Laughlin, Nevada.

As for the comedy, "The Big Bang Theory" stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki as brilliant theoretical physicists who meet a woman (Kaley Cuoco) who shows them how little they know about real life.

And finally, "The Power of 10" features contestants as they try to guess the results of nationwide surveys with the finalist moving on to a bonus round in which their winnings multiply by 10 for each of its five questions - up to $10 million. Drew Carey hosts.

The Eye presents its schedule to the advertising community on Wednesday. As always, for more details on these projects visit the links to the right.
