Noah Wyle Perfect Citizen

Noah Wyle to Lead CBS' Perfect Citizen Legal Drama Pilot, From Good Wife EP

Noah Wyle is set to be CBS’ Perfect Citizen as the star of the legal drama pilot hailing from The Good Wife writer/executive producer Craig Turk, our sister site Deadline reports.

The Falling Skies and ER vet will play the former General Counsel for the NSA, who embarks on a new career at a storied Boston law firm after his involvement as a whistleblower in an international scandal. He must then face the reality that while half the country thinks he’s our greatest patriot, the other half thinks he’s a traitor.

The cast of the potential series also includes Lenny Platt (Quantico) as a self-proclaimed “alpha associate” at the firm.

Wyle most recently recurred on the TNT drama The Librarians, on which he also serves as an executive producer.

    Noah Wyle? I’m in!

  2. Iris says:

    Like SWAT with Shemar Moore, this one will have to suck very hard to not be picked up. CBS loves Big Names.
    But it’s the first CBS pilot with a concept that I find a bit interesting.

  3. Jason says:

    I wonder if this means he’ll be going back to an intermittent presence on Librarians. Too bad, if so.

      I, on the other hand, am actively hoping that’s exactly what this means. And preferably even less than intermittent.

      I like Noah Wyle a lot and will definetely watch this if it gets picked up. And I like Flynn in Librarians, but I don´t think he works on a permanent bases. The dynamic between the other team members doesn´t work as good if he is around. IMO he is to smart to always have him around and they dumbed him down in a few episodes last season.

    Noah Wyle is the best thing about The Librarians. I hope Flynn Carsen returns!

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Hope he’ll be in some episodes of The Libriarians next season if his new show gets pickup. Happy Noah will be on TV more!

  6. Kelli says:

    I might so excited about this!!

  7. Stacy says:

    Oooh, I’d love to see Wylie back in a serious drama. Fingers crossed!

  8. Lore says:

    Dr. John Carter welcome back… i missed you

  9. Marie58 says:

    I can’t imagine that he would stop making appearances on The Librarians. He loves that show. I think he’ll try to do both. It wouldn’t be The Librarians without Flynn Carsen!

    • tjchurch2001 says:

      Respectfully disagree. Flynn was in “The Librarian” movies. “The Librarians” the series added various other had-been potential Librarians.

      It would not be the movies without him… It would be the “replacement” players (or something), but still the group named in the title of the show, & as good as the films if not far better!

  10. Jennifer says:

    I’m hoping this doesn’t mean he’s off the Librarians. Wouldn’t they have different shooting schedules??

  11. Collette says:

    Absolutely love him. I’m in!
