CW Orders ‘Cheerleader Death Squad’ Pilot From Marc Cherry
The CW has greenlit its fourth pilot of the cycle with some big names behind the scenes.
“Cheerleader Death Squad” comes from “Desperate Housewives” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” producers Marc Cherry, Neal Baer, Dan Truly and Sabrina Wind.
The one-hour pilot follows a former CIA agent-turned-teacher who realizes that his elite students at a Washington, D.C., prep school have high level access through their personal connections — and trains them to be his eyes and ears in the world of international espionage so he can make his way back into the CIA.
Cherry (“Desperate,” “Devious Maids”), Baer (“SVU,” “ER,” “Under the Dome”) and Truly (“SVU”) are exec producing and writing the pilot, with Wind (“Desperate,” “Devious Maids”) serving as an exec producer. CBS Television Studios will produce.
