More info about The Things They Left Behind:

Published as part of the collection Transgressions: Volume Two, King’s original tale follows a 9/11 survivor plagued by guilt. One day, objects belonging to his deceased former co-workers start showing up at his house. Unable to get rid of him, he enlists the help of his neighbor to return them to the families of the dead.

CBS’ adaptation seems to retain the same basic premise, as TV Line describes The Things They Left Behind as a supernatural procedural drama about “an unlikely pair of investigators carrying out the unfinished business of the dead.”

The network has given a put pilot commitment to The Things They Left Behind, meaning they’ll owe producer Warner Bros. TV a lot of money if the pilot never airs. In other words, it’s all but guaranteed that CBS will pick up the series.

In addition to writing the script, Grahame-Smith will executive produce along with David Katzenberg, Greg Berlanti, and Sarah Schechter. TV vet Berlanti’s credits include The CW’s Arrow and The Flash. Additionally, it was announced last week that he was developing a Supergirl TV series.
