The ex-Unit star is teaming up with former Everwood showrunner Rina Mimoun on The Escape Artist, a potential hour-long drama series about a brother and sister who help people disappear.
Foley and Mimoun will serve as exec producers on the project, which has received a script commitment from CBS.
This marks a reunion for the pair. Last spring, Mimoun cast Foley in her CBS medical pilot The Doctor, which was not ordered to series.
The news comes at a busy time for Foley, who’s currently juggling recurring roles on both Grey’s Anatomy and, beginning this Sunday, True Blood.
