Pilot Scoop: Scott Foley, Everwood Exec Rina Mimoun Escape to CBS

Scott Foley is getting back in business with CBS, albeit strictly behind the scenes.

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.

    They are going to have to cast a VERY pretty actress as his sister – his eyes are so dreamy. He’ll always be Noel to me :)

    The article didn’t say that he was playing the brother, it just said he was exec-producing. I don’t want him to leave Grey’s. I love him on it.

    I hear they help people disappear by giving them a show on NBC. BA DUM BUM!

    me too! I don’t want him to leave grey’s. If he has to choose between the recurring on grey’s or true blood i hope he chooses grey’s. I adore him and teddy so so much. Such a cute couple and lately the only best thing that happened on the show. Pls stay on Grey’s Mr. Foley. Give teddy a happy ending. Pretty please.

    I really like Scott Foley but I want him on anything but Greys Anatomy. Only because I don’t watch Greys. Just not my kind of show.

    Would try this out because of Scott, just like I’m going to try revenge out because of Max Martini.
