Pilot News: Jennifer Beals, Paula Marshall Join John Corbett In CBS Drama Widow Detective

Jennifer Beals and Paula Marshall have been tapped to co-star opposite John Corbett in the CBS drama pilot Widow Detective.

From CSI executive producer Carol Mendelsohn, the project centers on a decorated police officer (played by Parenthood‘s Corbett) who, after losing three partners in the line of duty, becomes a surrogate husband, lover and father to their families.

Beals and Marshall join as two very different widows. The Chicago Code alumna will play the woman who knows Corbett’s Denny best of all the wives, while the Gary Unmarried vet will portray a mother of three who gratefully accepts the help and affection of her late husband’s partner.

David Hubbard penned the pilot and is set to serve as exec producer along with Mendelsohn.
