Although details haven’t been released, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler did tell a meeting of the Television Critics Association that the project is “under development” and that the network and the performer are close to inking a deal.

Mayer is no stranger to CBS, having done a guest cameo on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

But Mayer may show up on the Tiffany Network way before his show, if green-lighted, first airs. The artist has five Grammy nominations, and this year’s telecast is airing on, you guessed it, CBS.
