Kathryn Joins Surgeon General Pilot


Looks like the sort of Kathryn-related news we’ve all been waiting for has finally broken.

Kathryn has, apparently, signed on for a new CBS pilot called Surgeon General.  The Surgeon General is appointed by the US Government to over see matters of public health.

British actor Jason Isaacs (Awake and Harry Potter) has the lead role of Dr John Sherman.  Kathryn is earmarked to play his Chief Of Staff, Lydia Ferrari.  After the recent launch of the new Ferrari hybrid supercar, here on KM UK we will call Kathryn’s character in Surgeon General ‘LaFerrari’ 😉  At this stage it is just a pilot, but it does mean it has passed earlier stages of acceptance regarding the script etc.  Depending on how well it ‘tests’ the show could be picked up for the 2013-14 season.

Samuel Baum (creator of Lie To Me) is writing and producing the pilot for CBS TV Studios and CBS Television.  Kathryn spent 7 years with CBS in Cold Case.  Beth Riesgraf (Leverage) and Katherine McNamara (Kickin’ It) are also set to star as another doctor and Sherman’s daughter respectively.

Rod Lurie is scheduled to direct the pilot, which may further explain Kathryn’s involvement beyond the CBS connection.  Kathryn has worked with Rod several times already on films like The Contender and Resurrecting The Champ.  In fact for a while Kathryn had had a role in all of Rod’s features.

Fingers crossed (but not too tightly, doctors orders :-) ) for Kathryn returning to the small screen.
