CBS greenlights Charlaine Harris series




Well, this was probably inevitable in the wake of "True Blood's" massive success: CBS has greenlit an adaptation of Magnolia author Charlaine Harris' "Harper Connelly" book series. Ridley and Tony Scott will executive produce.

The TV show is to be called "Grave Sight" after the title of the first book in the series.

Here's how Publisher's Weekly describes it:

Harper travels to the Ozark town of Sarne, Ark., to find a missing teenage girl's body, accompanied by her stepbrother, Tolliver, who acts as her manager and bodyguard and with whom she shares a thinly disguised physical attraction that they manage to keep at bay by engaging in casual sex with various partners. Finding the body takes no time at all, but leaving town afterward isn't so easy. When Harper's life is threatened and Tolliver ends up in jail on trumped-up charges, it quickly becomes apparent that something sinister is going on in Sarne.

Could this be the first TV show set in Arkansas since "Evening Shade"?
