CBS has added two drama pilots to its slate: The Doctor, a medical/family drama from Privileged creator Rina Mimoun, and Hail Mary, a buddy PI show from writer Jeff Wadlow. The Doctor, which originally landed at CBS in August with a put pilot commitment, centers on a mother who reconnects with her adult children when she joins the family medical practice. Mimoun, who is under an overall deal at WBTV, is the writer-executive producer. I hear this is one of 3 projects top pilot director David Nutter, aka “the pilot whisperer,” is considering for his pilot directing gig this year. CBS has been aggressive in pursuing medical shows this development season as launching a successful medical franchise is a priority for the network. The Doctor is the second medical drama project picked up to pilot so far, following the order to Susannah Grant’s supernatural medical show.

Hail Mary, which is co-produced by Silver Pictures, is a buddy P.I. show centered around a suburban single mom in Atlanta who teams up with a street-wise hustler to solve crimes. This marks the second consecutive drama pilot at CBS for Wadlow who last year created The Odds, also with Silver Pictures and WBTV producing. Wadlow wrote Hail Mary and is executive producing it with Joel Silver. Beau Bauman serves as a producer. In addition to Hail Mary, Wadlow has another drama project in contention this pilot season, Rush at the CW.

Besides to the Susannah Grant project, Hail Mary and The Doctor join recently greenlighted dramas Rookies, and the Sarah Michelle Geller starrer Ringer.
