In a competitive situation with multiple bidders, Hunch, a light hourlong procedural from Chris Murphey (The Karate Kid) and Matthew Gross, has landed at CBS with a put pilot commitment with penalty.

A co-production between EuropaCorp TV Studios and CBS Television Studios, Hunch centers on a LAPD detective who begrudgingly teams up with a celebrity psychic who, unfortunately, is also his ex-wife.

The project reunites Murphey and Gross, who were co-showrunners on ABC’s Body of Proof. Murphey penned the script, which the two developed on spec, and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Gross (Taken, Dirty Sexy Money, Daybreak) will executive produce with EuropaCorp’s Edouard de Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros.

Gross, who has served as president of EuropaCorp TV US since 2014, has several series on the slate including the upcoming Taken series at NBC, Artificial Intelligence at TNT, Bulletproof at Amazon and These Final Hours at Fox. EuropaCorp TV USA finances, produces, and distributes television shows around the world.

Murphey is repped by Dan Brecherat Rothman Brecher and Matt Leipzig and Jordan Bayer at Original Artists.
