Only Human
Jamie Lee Curtis has scored the starring role in CBS' untitled David Marshall Grant drama previously known as "Only Human". Curtis will play their mother, a dynamic and distinguished physician who now runs a hospital.

Based on the Israeli format "Ran Quartet," the story is described as a soapy medical show centered around quadruplets who grew up on a reality show. [Source: The Live Feed]
