Former My Boys star Jordana Spiro is taking a dramatic turn as the lead in Fox’s untitled Josh Berman/Rob Wright pilot. Also cast in the project, directed by Michael Dinner, is Jamie Lee Kirchner. The medical drama centers on Grace Delvin (Spiro), one of Chicago’s top young cardiothoracic surgeons who, to save her gambling-indebted brother, is forced to moonlight as a “mob doctor.” Kirchner, repped by Gersh and Blue Stone Entertainment, will play a surgical resident working with Grace whose father is the Chairman of the hospital Board. The pilot, executive produced by Berman, Wright and Dinner, reunites Spiro with Sony TV, which also produced the cult fave TBS comedy series My Boys. The actress, repped by ICM and Principal Entertainment, has been testing the drama waters lately with recurring roles on Harry’s Law and Dexter.
