Peter Facinelli, Kim Raver Join Zoobiquity Drama Pilot at Fox

Peter Facinelli (Nurse Jackie) and Kim Raver (24) have joined Zoobiquity, Fox’s unconventional medical procedural pilot, TVLine has learned.

The potential series, based on the book of the same name, follows Dr. Kara Martins (played by White Collar‘s Marsha Thomason), a successful cardiologist at a Boston hospital who decides to partner with a socially challenged veterinarian to pioneer cross-species medicine.

Facinelli, who is currently recurring on CBS’ Supergirl, will play the vet, Dr. Lucas Court, whose bond with his animal patients verges on the uncanny. Raver, meanwhile, will portray Dr. Julia Fowler, the chief of medicine at the hospital.

The project is written and executive-produced by Bones’ Stephen Nathan and Jonathan Collier. Raver, coincidentally, appeared in a multi-episode arc on Bones last fall.

    What does this mean for Maxwell Lord?

  2. sunshine says:

    The plot sounds unusual (and not a knockoff), so I’ll go for it. Gotta reward originality.

  3. Roger says:

    I can see them killing off Maxwell Lord and replacing him with the Earth-2 Maxwell Lord down the line after the crossover. Give him his powers and make a real threat if this pilot doesn’t get pick up to series.

    It sounds like a zoo version of Bones meets Zoo, hardly original *shrugs*

    Won’t miss Raver on Bones, her character was cold & b*tchy

    • kmw says:

      Yes this show sounds like a zoo version of Bones. I liked Raver’s character on Bones but not interested in this one

      • KelleyH says:

        I agree. They cancel Bones but gives us zoo Bones??? I most definitely will NOT be watching. I’d rather watch every rerun of Bones.

    You know this will be a winner….hahaha

    Aw, his Maxwell Lord is so delightfully slimey. But I guess this might be a better gig for him.

  7. I love Kim Raver, I miss her on Grey’s Anatomy.
