Reality king Mark Burnett, clearly knowing talent when he sees it, is teaming up with Craig Wright ("Dirty Sexy Money," “Six Feet Under”) for a CBS drama project, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The Sony Pictures TV project is focused on a lawyer who gets a second chance at life after a car crash that almost kills him.
Wright will write the series and is an executive producer along with Burnett and Burnett’s wife, actress Roma Downey (“Touched by an Angel.”)
Burnett, by the way, has dipped his toe into scripted programming before, though it’s been quite awhile. He produced "Commando Nanny" for the WB in 2004.
