by  in TV News Comment

The team behind CBS’s The Mentalist is looking to abandon Earth for Mars, as Deadline reports series creator Bruno Heller and executive producer Tom Szentgyorgyi are developing a sci-fi Western for The CW called Red.

According to the site, “Red is described as a neo-Western drama about the first human settlement on Mars and life on this new frontier, centering on the relationships between the town’s female sheriff, a doctor and a criminal.”

Szentgyorgyi is working on the script and will produce the show alongside Heller.
