J.J. Abrams, a man chemically designed to create television shows, has another pilot in the works and this one will star veteran TV actor Gerald McRaney.

He's been picked for a pilot called Undercovers, a spy action show described as a cross between Mr. and Mrs. Smith and The Bourne Identity.

McRaney will play a CIA boss overseeing a husband and wife spy couple. Abrams wrote the pilot with TV scribe Josh Reims who's also written scripts for ABC's Brothers & Sisters and Dirty Sexy Money. Abrams may also step in the director's chair for the pilot episode commissioned by NBC.

CBS launches online channel Innertube

CBS InnertubeToday, CBS launched their online content delivery site, creatively called innertube (yes, the "i" is small). According to this press release, innertube will contain not only free ad-supported replays of CBS network shows, it will also contain original content, which by the looks of the lineup, looks mostly reality-based right now. The three shows that are up for viewing today are: Beyond Survivor, a behind-the-scenes look at the venerable reality series; Survivor Live, a call-in show that was already streaming on CBS.com; and Geek to Chic, which is a medical procedural show.

(Just kidding. It's a college-based makeover show.)

At some point, CBS will also stream programming culled from their back catalog of shows, which is good news for the two or three people who miss Major Dad.
