While it’s bad news for the Blair Underwood-starring “L.A. Law” reboot, which ABC passed on today, producers of the long-gestating “True Lies” series have reason to celebrate tonight.

After six years, the McG spearheaded series adaptation of the James Cameron feature film has been officially commissioned to series by CBS. The series, 20th Television’s first hour-long series at CBS in 12 years, stars “Shameless” alum Steve Howey in the Arnold Schwarzenegger role and Ginger Gonzaga in the Jamie Lee Curtis part.

“True Lies” will premiere as a midseason replacement.

Shocked to discover that her bland and unremarkable computer consultant husband is a skilled international spy, an unfulfilled suburban housewife is propelled into a life of danger and adventure when she’s recruited to work alongside him to save the world as they try to revitalize their passionless marriage

Meanwhile, producers of the “L.A Law” reboot, which also would’ve brought back Underwood’s original co-star Corbin Bernsen, are shopping the pilot to other networks.
