A CBS drama project that failed to receive a pickup from the network last month isn’t dead yet. Variety reports that CBS TV Studios will reshoot the pilot for the legal drama “Doubt.”
“CBS was moving last week to lock in final details for the pilot to be reshot this fall, putting it on the fast track for series contention, according to sources,” Variety reports. “The script is currently being rewritten by the original scribes, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ duo Tony Phelan and Joan Rater.”
CBS wasn’t commenting on the report.
As we reported last fall, the drama “revolves around a female lawyer who becomes romantically involved with one of her clients who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.” The original pilot starred Teddy Sears, KaDee Strickland, Dule Hill and Laverne Cox.
