        CBS has given a straight-to-series order for 13 episodes of SALVATION, a new one-hour event series from Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout and CBS Television Studios. The serialized drama will be broadcast during summer 2017.

         A suspense thriller, SALVATION centers on an MIT grad student and a tech superstar who bring a low-level Pentagon official a staggering discovery – that an asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth.

SALVATION is the type of fast-paced, dramatic ride that viewers look for in a summer event series,” said Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. “We’re excited to launch another high concept, highly promotable show with great auspices that adds to our roster of year-round, original scripted programming.”

SALVATION is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout. Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, who wrote the script (based on the story by Matt Wheeler), Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin and Peter Lenkov will serve as executive producers. 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.
