Pernell Roberts, 81, best-known for his stint as Adam Cartwright on Bonanza, died Sunday of cancer at home in Malibu. As one of the Cartwright brothers, Pernell stayed with Bonanza for six seasons, opting to leave the show in 1965. Pernell’s departure from Bonanza, after fulfilling his initial six-year contract, shocked Hollywood and many thought his career would be forever hurt as a result of leaving a top-rated show at the pinnacle of its popularity. For the next 14 years, Pernell made numerous appearances on TV shows including The Virginian, Hawaii Five-O and Mission Impossible among others. He also toured with theatrical musicals The King and I, Camelot and The Music Man. In 1979, Pernell was cast in the title role of series Trapper John, M.D., a spin-off of MASH. The series was on the air until 1986. Later, Pernell was host and narrator for the TV series FBI: The Untold Stories from 1991-1993.

Instead of flowers, contributions can be made to Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute, c/o Ms. Holly Gibout, Northwestern Memorial Foundation, 676 N. St. Clair Street, Suite 2050, Chicago, IL 60611.

Film and TV actor, Johnny Seven, 83, died last Friday from lung cancer at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, CA, reports THR.

Forest Whitaker will likely star in a spin-off of CBS’ Criminal Minds as the Academy Award-winning actor is in discussions with the network about the possibility. The project, presented during an episode of Criminal Minds this spring, is about a new group of profilers who work outside the FBI. Whitaker would portray Cooper, the squad leader and a father-like figure to the other team members. ABC Studios, the Mark Gordon Company and CBS Studios would produce the spin-off with Chris Mundy writing the script.

Nick Davis Productions is partnering with Sloane Cooper Development to produce a 20-episode crime series for AETN’s global Crime & Investigation Network. The one-hour series, tentatively titled Bloody Hard Work, will focus on top forensic labs and will debut worldwide during fourth quarter 2010.

ABC gave a nod to three more pilots: a drama pilot called No Ordinary Family from Greg Berlanti and Jon Feldman (Dirty Sexy Money) and the comedy Freshman from Greg Malins, Arianna Huffington and 20th TV. ABC also said okay to an untitled multi-camera comedy from Joe Port and Joe Wiseman (Just Shoot Me) and ABC Studios about adult siblings dealing with their parents’ recent divorce.

CBS okayed a new comedy spec from Carter Bays and Craig Thomas (How I Met Your Mother) titled Livin’ on a Prayer. CBS also ordered two other drama pilots, Chaos from Brett Ratner and an untitled procedural from Ed Redlich (Without a Trace). Livin’ on a Prayer will be produced by 20th TV and contains a premium license fee and a large penalty if it doesn’t go to series. Shot similar in style to How I Met Your Mother, Livin’ on a Prayer is a multi-camera romantic comedy set in Pittsburgh about a young couple and their friends. Chaos, written by Tom Spezialy is about rogue CIA operatives who take on the negative aspects of their jobs involving incompetence and political infighting. Spezialy executive produces with Ratner for 20th TV. The untitled drama from Sony TV and CBS Studios is about a NYPD female detective who has the ability to remember everything. Redlich and John Bellucci are writing the script and executive producing along with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly. Originally the project was titled The Rememberer and CBS picked it up last September with a large commitment.
