After a few years of absence, Scott Caan is coming back to CBS with a brand new series. Topangaland, which he co-wrote and is executive producing, will be a PI drama that is set in the titular city. The show is currently in production at CBS, with Caan himself appearing onscreen. This isn't the first time that Bruckheimer Television and CBS Studios have collaborated - the two previously teamed up for the show SEAL Team.
A laid-back former cop ( Scott Caan ) works for his famed dad's private investigator service in Topangaland. He tries to solve crimes that take him to Malibu estates, Topanga hippy collectives, Venice back alleys, and everywhere else. All while juggling a tense father-son connection and the members of his unusual relatives.
The concept is the result of Scott Caan's discussions with JBTV about creating a series together. Under Cavell's overall arrangement at CBS Studios, the corporation linked him with Cavell, and the two collaborated on the characters at the core of the cast PI drama. (The father character for Scott Caan's actual dad, James Caan, is not being produced.) The production was pulled off the table and purchased ahead of schedule by CBS, which had been seeking a way to bring Caan back to the screen after his Golden Globe-nominated role as Danno in CBS/CBS Studios' Hawaii-Five-0.
Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, and KristieAnne Reed executive direct with Caan and Cavell — who will act as writers — for Jerry Bruckheimer Television.
SEAL Team, which is relocating from CBS to Paramount+ for its forthcoming fifth season, is created and executive produced by Cavell. He also worked as an executive director on Justified and co-executive director on Homeland and Sneaky Pete and co-created the CBS Studios-produced Stephen King television series adaption The Stand. CAA and The Shuman Company, represent him.
