Project is set in the ER of fictional LA County Hospital
Marti Noxon is checking into the hospital with CBS.
The network has ordered a pilot for the medical drama “Code Black,” which counts Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Glee”) among its executive producers.
The drama is set in the busiest and most notorious ER in the nation – LA County Hospital – where the extraordinary staff confronts a broken system in order to protect their ideals and the patients who need them the most.
Michael Seitzman, who created the CBS drama “Intelligence,” is writing and serving as executive producer, with David Semel on board as a writer and executive producer.
In addition to Seitzman, Semel and Noxon (pictured above), the pilot is being executive produced by Linda Goldstein-Knowlton and Ryan McGarry, the latter of whom’s feature documentary of the same title inspired the pilot.
“Code Black” is produced by ABC Studios in association with CBS Television Studios.
The network has also ordered the comedy pilot “The Half of It,” a multi-camera offering about a newly divorced dad who revels in the fact that he now gets to keep half his stuff, which is more than he ever had when he was married.
Mike Gibbons is writing and executive producing the project, which comes from CBS Television Studios.
On Monday, the network gave pilot orders to a project based on the film franchise “Rush Hour,” as well as the multi-camera comedy “Joe Time” and “Super Clyde,” which the network previously made a pilot of in 2013.
