NEAR DEATH (CBS, New!) - Jennifer Johnson has sold a potential drama to the Eye in which "following a horrible accident, a young woman's near-death experience leads to inexplicable visions that prove surprisingly useful in helping her detective father solve crimes, and may also reveal dark secrets that threaten to permanently fracture their family."

SWAT (CBS) - Rochelle Aytes is bound for the current season in the recurring role of Nichelle, "a woman who was born and raised in an upper middle-class neighborhood in Baldwin Hills, but developed a desire to give back and help those with fewer resources.

TODAY'S SPECIAL (WarnerMedia, New!) - David Wain and A.D. Miles are set to team for a potential daily series "that blends the story-telling mechanics of a daily soap opera, the tone and style of a single camera sitcom, and the topical responsiveness of late night television.
