ALIBI (CBS, New!) - Craig O'Neill is looking to bring David de Lautour and Hannah Marshall's New Zealand series to the U.S. The non-linear effort, penned by said trio and Gareth Williams, is "an investigative drama that drops the audience directly into the interrogation room alongside our homicide detectives, challenging them to discern fact from fiction and ferret out the suspects' lies in a race to solve each episode's crime before time runs out." Jerry Bruckheimer Television's Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed and Zero Gravity's Jack Kingsrud and Mark Williams will also executive produce for CBS Television Studios. (Deadline.com)
ARE WE OK? (ABC, New!) - Megan Gailey and Aaron Burdette are set to team for a single-camera comedy at the Alphabet about "how a Midwestern couple in their 20's manages to stay together after the entire world sees their marriage proposal end in disaster. And on a deeper level, it's about their long, winding journey to figure if they're actually meant to be together." ABC Studios is behind the half-hour with Jamie Tarses likewise executive producing. (Deadline.com)

CBS Television Studios-based Jerry Bruckheimer Television is behind the hour with Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed likewise executive producing. (Deadline.com)
