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.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    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.
