Christine Lahti has signed on to star in CBS’ drama pilot The Doctor.
The series centers on a mother who reconnects with her adult children when she joins the family medical practice.
Lahti’s recent credits include a recurring role on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She also has had starring roles in Jack & Bobby and Chicago Hope
Doctor is executive produced and written by Rina Mimoun (Privileged). David Nutter (The Mentalist) is set to direct the pilot.
I’m tired of doctor shows, but this one at least sounds different from the rest. I still probably won’t watch it though. I don’t typically enjoy the family centric TV shows, Modern Family being the exception.
