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.
