Blink TV Pilot The CW Michael WestonOnetime House private eye Michael Weston has joined The CW’s whimsical hour-long pilot Blink, TVLine has learned.

Described as a “warm, quirky, humorous drama,” Blink revolves around a family patriarch who lands in a coma-like state after a car accident, but can still see and hear all.

Weston, whose other credits include Burn Notice, Six Feet Under and Law & Order: SVU, will play Neal, the brother of said patriarch.

The cast also includes Madeline Carroll (Mr. Popper’s Penguins) as Ari, an angsty teen having an especially hard time dealing with her dad’s condition.

Vera Herbert (Awkward) and David Marshall Grant (Brothers & Sisters) are among that project’s EPs.

    Love Michael Weston, but nothing about that screams whimsical, humorous or quirky.

    Haha I agree..not sure where this would fit on the CWs schedule even if it was picked up to series.

    Sounds like Saving Hope.

    Weakest of all the CW pilots. This has ZERO chance of getting picked up.
