Scott Caan, a former co-star on Hawaii Five-0, is back to CBS with a new entire hour leading role that he is both co-writing and executive directing. Topangaland, a thriller co-written by Scott Caan and SEAL Team creator Benjamin Cavell, is in production at the channel, with Caan set to appear. Jerry Bruckheimer Television and CBS Studios, where the firm is located, are behind the idea.
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.

What is a “teaser”?
A teaser is an announcement of an upcoming project. It may be a single image, or a still from the show, or even an entire trailer. The goal of the teaser is to get people excited about your show without giving away too much information.
How do I create a good teaser?
There are no hard and fast rules for creating your own teaser, but there are some guidelines that you should follow:
Be inviting and exciting. Teasers should excite people and make them want to watch the show.
Keep it short. Teasers are typically 15 to 30 seconds long, but some last as long as a minute. If you have a lot of information to get across, consider making your teaser longer, but don’t go much longer than that without a break in the action.
Don’t give away too much information. Don’t tell your audience exactly what happens in the show or how it ends, or they won’t have anything left to look forward to when they watch the actual episode!
