LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- TNT and TBS say they are going into production on four series pilots, including an updated version of the classic U.S. nighttime soap "Dallas."

Also in the works are pilots for a pair of crime procedural pilots, "Perception" and an untitled project from Allan Loeb, the executive producer/writer who penned "The Switch" and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."

TNT's sister station TBS is also working on "Brain Trust," a comedic detective series.

"These pilots reflect our enthusiasm for relatable but complex everyman heroes, showcased in exciting storytelling environments," Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, said in a statement. "They also reflect our reliance on extraordinary talent to deliver on the promise of quality series television. The writers of these projects bring great intelligence, heart and humor to their work. We are confident each of these projects would be a terrific addition to our original series line-up."
