CBS, CW and NBC All Order More Scripts

Three networks have put in additional script orders for several of the fall’s new shows. CBS has ordered four more scripts of the Jimmy Smitts drama Cane, while CW has ordered three more scripts for its new comedy Aliens in America.

Over at NBC, the network has given a three script order to all of its new fall shows; the comedy Chuck and dramas Bionic Woman, Life and Journeyman.
