CBS ORDERS SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT FOR INVESTIGATIVE DRAMA TO BE WRITTEN BY CHARLES MURRAY AND BASED ON THE PAWN FROM AUTHOR STEVEN JAMES' BESTSELLING NOVELS

LOS ANGELES - October 15, 2010 - CBS is developing a drama series based on the best-selling novel, The Pawn, in association with ABC Studios. The project will be produced by Michael Goldstein and Michael Larkin of Larkin-Goldstein Productions whose credits include Scoundrels, which aired on ABC this past summer. The script will be written by Charles Murray (Criminal Minds, Castle).

Based on The Pawn, the first in Steven James' eight book series of Patrick Bowers' thrillers, the story follows FBI agent Patrick Bowers as he uses geospatial investigative techniques to track high profile crimes. The real life, controversial process is used by law enforcement agencies across the United States. Geo-profilers use locations, times, computer technology, and the geography of the crime to track down criminals and solve crimes.

Charles Murray is represented by Scott Siedel at WME, and Dianne Fraser at Industry Entertainment. Larkin-Goldstein is represented by attorney Thomas Collier of Bloom, Hergott, Diemer, Rosenthal. Steven James is represented by Brian Lipson at IPG

Best known for his complex and intense thrillers, Steven James has written four critically-acclaimed novels, The Pawn, The Rook, The Knight and The Bishop.

Michael Goldstein and Michael Larkin are independent television and film producers with over 100 hours of scripted and non-scripted programming to their credit which includes; 'Scoundrels' for ABC, 'Red Water' for TBS, '44 Minutes' for FX, 'Behind The Camera: The Story of Charlie's Angels' for NBC, and the Emmy-nominated 'Four Minutes' for ESPN.
