Unfortunately, Rainn Wilson’s pilot, Backstrom never made it onto our screens. CBS decided not to pick up the show for its 2013/2014 season.
This is a shame as the Sizzle Reel for the pilot episode showed some great potential. Rainn Wilson plays Detective Everett Backstrom alongside Mamie Gummer as Detective Nicole Graveley.
Based on the books by Swedish author Leif G.W. Persson, Backstrom was adapted for television by Hart Hanson, Creator of the very popular TV Show Bones.
