A medical drama that’s in the works at Fox has received an order from the network for a pilot. Deadline.com reports that Fox ordered a pilot for “The Beast,” from former “ER” executive producer Neal Baer.
“Launching a medical drama is a priority for Fox this season, and this is the second pilot in the genre ordered by the network, joining ‘The Resident,'” Deadline notes. Both projects are from 20th Television.
“Written by ‘Law & Order: SVU’ veterans Baer and Dawn DeNoon, ‘The Beast’ is a life-and-death procedural. Literally,” Deadline reports. “Each week will follow three challenging medical cases. In the end, two of the patients will live, one will die. The series will center on their doctor — with a clinical fear of death — who never stops fighting the odds.”
