"Reckless," a legal drama set in Charleston, S.C., has been picked by CBS for next season.

The series, which stars Cam Gigandet and Anna Wood, revolves around a "gorgeous" Yankee litigator and a Southern city attorney who struggle to hide their mutual attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal.

The show comes from Ian Sanders and Kim Moses, the creative force behind "Ghost Whisperer." Catherine Hardwicke, director of several features including "Twilight," is an executive producer, and directed the pilot.

In other news from TV's upfronts, the network has apparently passed on the highly touted "Beverly Hills Cop," based on the popular movie franchise starring Eddie Murphy.

Brandon T. Jackson was to star as the son of the Axel Foley character played by Murphy. Shawn Ryan ("The Shield") was listed as executive producer of the series, and Murphy was to have appeared in the pilot.
