Deadline reports CBS has “rolled” on the Sensory TV series pilot. According to the report, casting problems led the CBS not to move forward with it, this pilot season. The network and studios will take another look at Sensory, after the upfronts.
Set at Harvard Medical School, Sensory is based on the story of a real life Mass. General neurologist. The project comes from ER and Mercy Street vet David Zabel, Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions, CBS TV Studios, and TriStar Television.
…Sensory is inspired by the the true story of Dr. Joel Salinas, a neurologist and researcher at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. The two-hander centers around a veteran neurologist and her protégé who, like Salinas, has mirror-touch synesthesia, a neurological trait that causes him to experience other people’s sensations. Zabel executive produces with Ridley Scott and David Zucker of Scott Free Prod. and Roger Freet of Foundry Media.
The move leaves Bunker Hill as the only CBS medical drama pilot in contention for next season.
