The drama, billed by the network as a "sultry legal show" set in Charleston, South Carolina, centers on a Yankee litigator and a Southern city attorney who struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal.

Cam Gigandet ("Twilight") and Anna Wood ("Deception") are attached to star in the CBS TV Studios production, written by Dana Stevens and directed by Catherine Hardwicke.

Hardwicke is also aboard as executive producer, along with Kim Moses and Ian Sander. Stevens is attached as a co-executive producer.

"Reckless" joins procedural "Intelligence" (starring Josh Holloway) and serialized thriller "Hostages" (starring Dylan McDermott) on the network.
