The CW to Develop Drama ‘The Pretenders’

The Series Is Created By Damon Wayans, Jr.

The logline: a seemingly normal suburban family is hiding a big secret: they’re actually individual assets in the Witness Protection Program, placed together to provide safe cover for three of the assets who are unrelated minors. Each of them has a closet full of skeletons and a bounty on their head, which means that for these outcasts, fitting in is about more than just social status, it’s about survival.

Brandon Zuck will write and executive produce, with Wayans and Kameron Tarlow executive producing for Two Shakes. Devon Greggory will also executive produce. CBS Television Studios, where Two Shakes is under a first-look deal, will produce.

Recently, Wayans signed on to star in and executive produce a comedy series with a script-to-series order at Peacock about a married couple who become bounty hunters to make ends meet.
