This is no wild guess. CBS has made a put-pilot commitment to the Hunch TV show pilot from Christopher Murphey and Matthew Gross. Murphey created the Body of Proof TV series, which was cancelled by ABC in 2013, after three seasons. He and Gross were co-showrunners on the medical drama, starring Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan.
A procedural, Hunch hails from CBS Television Studios and EuropaCorp TV Studios. As a put-pilot, Hunch is likely to be greenlit, because if the show doesn’t air as a series premiere or at least a special, the network owes financial penalties. Per Deadline, “Hunch centers on a LAPD detective who begrudgingly teams up with a celebrity psychic who, unfortunately, is also his ex-wife.”
Here is more on the Hunch TV series pilot, from Deadline:
Murphey penned the script, which the two developed on spec, and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Gross (Taken, Dirty Sexy Money, Daybreak [sic]) will executive produce with EuropaCorp’s Edouard de Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros.
Gross, who has served as president of EuropaCorp TV US since 2014, has several series on the slate including the upcoming Taken series at NBC, Artificial Intelligence at TNT, Bulletproof at Amazon and These Final Hours at Fox. EuropaCorp TV USA finances, produces, and distributes television shows around the world.
What do you think? Do you like the sound of Hunch? Who would you cast as the detective and psychic?
