Dermot Mulroney has been admitted to Bunker Hill, CBS’ medical drama pilot from Friday Night Lights and Parenthood EP Jason Katims.
The potential series follows a young Silicon Valley tech titan (The Borgias‘ Augustus Prew) who enlists a veteran surgeon with a controversial past in starting a hospital with a cutting edge, “new school” approach to medicine.
Mulroney, whose recent TV gigs include arcs on Showtime’s Shameless and Fox’s New Girl, as well as a series-regular stint on HBO’s Enlightened, will play said veteran surgeon Walter Wallace, a brilliant doc committed to saving lives who might care a little too much about his patients.
The cast also includes Brenda Song (Scandal, Dads) as Angie, a programmer at Bunker Hill Hospital who is blunt and unintentionally abrasive.
Katims penned the pilot and will serve as an EP alongside Michelle Lee and David Semel, who’s also the pilot’s director.
