Katherine Heigl Drama ‘Doubt’ Ordered to Series at CBS

CBS has given a series order to “Doubt,” a drama pilot starring Katherine Heigl. The show tells the story of a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer (Heigl) at a boutique firm as she starts to fall for her charismatic client, who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.

Doubt” was originally developed for the 2015-2016 season, but the pilot was never ordered to series and instead was re-developed and re-shot for this season. The first iteration starred KaDee Strickland and Teddy Sears, who have since been replaced with Heigl and Steven Pasquale. Aside from those recasts, most of the supporting cast remained on board. Laverne Cox was always set to co-star.

“Doubt” brings Heigl back to TV as a series regular. After many years on “Grey”s Anatomy,” she toplined NBC’s short-lived political drama “State of Affairs,” which was cancelled after one season. Heigl reunites with Phelan and Rater on the project, as they worked together on “Grey’s.”

Tony Phelan, Joan Rater, Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman and Adam Bernstein will serve as executive producers. Bernstein directed the pilot.

Pasquale, Cox, Dulé Hill, Dreama Walker, Elliott Gould and Kobi Libii will star alongside Heigl.

CBS Television Studios will produce.
