*“Law & Order” veteran S. Epatha Merkerson has been cast in a CBS pilot from “Erin Brockovich” writer Susannah Grant.
Filmmaker Jonathan Demme is executive producing the still untitled series with Grant and will also direct the pilot.
The medical drama stars Patrick Wilson – one of the most sought after actors of the current pilot season, according to the Hollywood Reporter – as a driven surgeon whose life is changed when his ex-wife dies and begins giving him life lessons from the after-life.
British actress Jennifer Ehle (“The King’s Speech”) co-stars as his wife.
Merkerson, who played Lt. Anita Van Buren for 17 seasons on “Law & Order,” has been cast as Wilson’s no-nonsense administrative assistant.
