CBS is spending a lot of time at the hospital this pilot season.
The network has ordered a pilot for the medical procedural “LFE” from “Pushing Daisies” and “Emily Owens M.D.” veteran Dan Jinks.
The project will center on second-year residents at New York City’s top hospital as they attempt to balance their god complexes with their humanity.
Jinks (pictured) is executive producing the pilot, which is being produced by CBS Television Studios, with Paul Downs Colaizzo writing and co-executive producing.
“LFE” joins the CBS drama pilot “Code Black,” which hails from Marti Noxon and Michael Seitzman, creator of the short-lived CBS drama “Intelligence.” That project is set in the busiest and most notorious ER in the nation — at the fictitious LA County Hospital — where the extraordinary staff confronts a broken system in order to protect their ideals and the patients who need them most.
