CBS has given a series order to the Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox-led drama “Doubt”. Heigl plays a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm as she starts to fall for her charismatic client (Steven Pasquale), who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.
Originally developed for last year with a pilot starring KaDee Strickland and Teddy Sears, the project has since been redeveloped and reshot but most of the supporting cast has remained intact including Dule Hill, Dreama Walker, Elliott Gould and Kobi Libii.
Tony Phelan, Joan Rater, Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman and Adam Bernstein will serve as executive producers. Bernstein directed the pilot.
