The story focuses on a skeptical female forensic psychologist (Herbers) who joins a priest-in-training (Colter) and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there’s a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work. “Luke Cage” star Colter was a regular guest star on the Kings’ “The Good Wife” and its spin-off “The Good Fight.” The pilot of “Evil” is set to air on CBS Sept. 26.
