CBS has given a put pilot commitment to a new medical drama from a writer-producer known for AMC’s “Mad Men,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Dahvi Waller’s 20th TV doctor drama, ‘Guinea Pigs,’ centers on a group of trailblazing doctors who run clinical trials in a Philadelphia hospital,” the story reports.
“The twist: The trials are risky, and the guinea pigs are human.”
Waller will write and exec produce the project, with Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope also executive producing.
Waller worked in broadcast before moving to cable for “Mad Men,” with credits including “Eli Stone” and “Desperate Housewives.”
