NEW YORK, June 13 (UPI) -- U.S. television network CBS says it has ordered three new dramas and two comedies for its 2011-12 primetime schedule.

The dramas are "Person of Interest," a crime thriller from executive producer J.J. Abrams and starring Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson and Taraji P. Henson; "Unforgettable," starring Poppy Montgomery as a former detective with a rare condition that enables her to remember virtually every detail from every day of her life; and "A Gifted Man," which is about a pre-eminent surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife returns and stars Patrick Wilson and Jennifer Ehle.

"2 Broke Girls" is a comedy about two different young waitresses who form an unlikely friendship, starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs.

The new CBS lineup will also include the odd-couple comedy, "How to Be A Gentleman," starring David Hornsby and Kevin Dillon. It is about a refined magazine columnist and his very unrefined personal trainer, the network said in a news release.
