CBS taps Ava DuVernay to direct new pilot

Ava DuVernay is on a winning streak.

Just last week it was announced that the scorching hot director will be working on the “Queen Sugar” series with Oprah Winfrey, and now she’s been tapped to serve as executive producer and director for an upcoming pilot for CBS.

The pilot, a drama titled “For Justice,” is about an FBI agent who works for the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division who struggles to reconcile the radical family that she had no say in choosing and her work family to whom she feels morally obligated.

In addition to DuVernay, a number of other executive producers are on board, including veteran actor Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Rene Balcer, and famed author James Patterson.

The pilot is based on Patterson’s debut novel, The Thomas Berryman Number.
