‘The Equalizer Reboot Starring Queen Latifah Gets CBS Pilot Order
CBS has given a pilot green light to The Equalizer, a reimagining of the classic series with Queen Latifah starring and executive producing. The project, which had a big pilot production commitment and had been considered a shoo-in for a pickup, hails from Take Two creators Andrew Marlowe & Terri Miller, Davis Entertainment, Flavor Unit, Martin Chase Productions, Universal Television and CBS TV Studios.

This mark the third drama pilot order for Davis Entertainment this pilot season at three different networks — Echo at NBC; Rebel, starring Katey Sagal, at ABC, and The Equalizer, toplined by Queen Latifah, at CBS.

Written by Marlowe and Miller, who will serve as showrunners, The Equalizer stars Queen Latifah as an enigmatic figure who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. This is a new take on the character played by Edward Woodward on the original series and by Denzel Washington in the movie franchise.
