Marsha Thomason is ignoring half of showbiz’s conventional “never work with children or animals” wisdom.
The potential series, based on the book of the same name, follows Thomason’s Dr. Kara Martins, a successful cardiologist at a Boston hospital who decides to partner with a socially challenged veterinarian to pioneer cross-species medicine.
The project is written and executive-produced by Bones‘ Stephen Nathan and Jonathan Collier.
Thomason’s other TV gigs include Lost, General Hospital, Las Vegas, Make It or Break It and the British series Safe House.
Antonia Bernath (Downton Abbey) also joined the pilot’s cast as Dr. Susan Gibbs, an incredibly smart, shy imaging specialist more comfortable with machines than with people.
