Samuel L. JacksonSamuel L. Jackson has conquered the film genre, so now he’s turning his sights to the land of television. CBS announced today that Jackson and his studio, Uppity Films, will be developing and producing a new series as part of a two year deal with the eyeball network.

Jackson said he opt’d to go with CBS over the other unnamed network after a sit down with the CBS Paramount Network studio president David Stapf. Stapf was impressed with Jackson because he watches their network and “CSI” in particular. Hey, I watch CSI! Can I make a show?

No details yet on what the show is or will be about. I’m guessing it won’t be animated like his current TV show with Spike, “Afro Samurai”, which returns in the fall for another season.
