The series will be distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution and worldwide by CBS Studios International.

The new drama will join the third season of ZOO, based on the #1 bestseller by James Patterson, as well as the next edition of the reality hit BIG BROTHER, on CBS’s 2017 summer lineup.
