There's no doubt that Justin Hartley (ex-Adam) will have a weekend to celebrate with CBS ordering the pilot for his new drama The Never Game! Besides executive producing the project, based on Jeffery Deaver's 2019 novel of the same name, Deadline reported Hartley will also star as Colter Shaw. As Hartley was busy wrapping up the sixth and final season of NBC's This Is Us last September, he continued to remain focused on finishing the show's sixth and final season, which pushed the start date of his new show into the off-season.

As a result of the change of writers this past spring, Ben Winters was hired to replace Michael Cooney's scripts. After his script was sent off to the network last week, the powers that be were very pleased with the script, which resulted in a quick pilot order. Hartley said upon the announcement of The Never Game coming to CBS and Colter Shaw being brought to life on the screen, "I couldn't be happier to hear that this project is coming to CBS and I look forward to seeing the characters on screen." Hartley said, "After reading the book, I was immediately interested in Colter Shaw and the story.

I have a feeling Colter is going to kick some serious ass and I can't wait for audiences to meet him." Can we expect anything from his new role? As a lone-wolf survivalist who struggles to deal with the issues of his fractured family, Colter roams the country as a "reward seeker," lending his expert tracker skills to diverse cases involving individuals, as well as law enforcement agencies, as they try to find answers to various crimes. There is nothing we look forward to more than Hartley returning to primetime! Are you planning on tuning in? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
