EXCLUSIVE: CBS has put in development Control, a medical drama from veteran TV writer-producer Jonathan Collier (In The Dark), Drop Dead Diva creator Josh Berman and Sony Pictures TV.

Written by Collier, Control is described as an intense, high-stakes medical investigation drama that follows the members of the Center for Disease Control’s Rapid Response Team, the “special forces” of the CDC, who fly into our nation’s hot zones, working feverishly to diagnose and eradicate the greatest threats to the future of humankind.
