brett ratner getty 'Chaos' outlook much less chaotic    Brett Ratner show picked up by CBSThe Brett Ratner (“Prison Break”) and Tom Spezialy (“Desperate Housewives”) project “Chaos” has been finally picked up by CBS with a midseason order, reports Variety.

Three weeks ago things looked a bit … well … chaotic for the CIA drama, as CBS and 20th TV could not come to an agreement after weeks of negotiations. The actors’ options were all let to expire on June 30. But it looks like a deal has been struck, including negotiations with all the actors involved.

Freddy Rodriguez (“Six Feet Under”), Eric Close (“Without a Trace”), James Murray (the British star of “Primeval”), Tim
Blake Nelson
(“Syriana,” “Minority Report”) and Carmen Ejogo (“Kidnapped”) were all in the Ratner-directed pilot and will be returning for the show. “Chaos” joins the “Criminal Minds” spinoff, “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” as a CBS midseason replacement.
