Boiling Point will tell the story of two former teen icons - once members of a hit group, also called Boiling Point - who become private detectives to earn money when their fame fades.
One of the pair will also use the new detective agency to hunt for his missing brother, the third member of the pop trio, according to Deadline.
Craig Sweeny (Medium, The 4400) will executive produce the pilot, which has received a script commitment from The CW.
Sweeny's role comes as part of a new two-year overall deal with CBS TV Studios, which will also see him serve as exec producer on forthcoming Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu.
Other pilots in the works at The CW include a new Wonder Woman TV adaptation and a series based on Sleepy Hollow.
