Robert De Niro's Crime-Drama Pilot Gets Acquired By CBS

CBS has acquired a crime-drama pilot called Rookies from Robert De Niro. In case you’ve never heard of this De Niro character, he’s the winner of Oscars for roles in Raging Bull and The Godfather: Part II. Probably won’t go far in the acting world, but hey, a young guy can dream, right?

At any rate, the show explores the lives of six recently-hired NYPD officers as try to balance work and their personal lives. De Niro will executive produce alongside crime novelist Richard Price and the producer of Little Fockers, Jane Rosenthal.
