“Windward Clinic” is a look at the lives of dedicated health care workers at a clinic in the Venice area of Los Angeles. McNally is writing the script and exec producing with Baer.
CBS has long been in the hunt for a medical drama. The subject matter is near and dear to Baer, who is a licensed physician. He’s worked at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and other facilities and is an advocate of expanding access to health care in underprivileged communities. He’s also a veteran of the wards on “ER.”
McNally’s other credits include USA Network’s “White Collar.”
Baer is also working this development cycle with Marc Cherry on a project for the CW, “Cheerleader Death Squad.”
