EXCLUSIVE: John Corbett has closed a deal to star as the title character in the CBS drama pilot Widow Detective, written by David Hubbard and produced by CSI maven Carol Mendelsohn. The project, directed by Davis Guggenheim, centers on Denny Brennan (Corbett), a decorated police detective who, after losing three partners in the line of duty, becomes surrogate husband, lover and father to their families. This marks Corbett’s return to CBS where he got his break as one of the stars of the 1990 series Northern Exposure. The CAA-repped actor most recently co-starred on Showtime’s United States Of Tara and recurred on NBC’s Parenthood. Hubbard, Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz are executive producing Widow Detective for CBS TV Studios.
