Patrick Wilson filming medical drama pilot
We're used to seeing dad John announcing the news every night on WTVT-Ch. 13, but now son Patrick Wilson might soon be beaming into the TV screens of Tampa Bay on another network, reportes Deadline Hollywood. The Broadway and film actor has been tapped to film a pilot for CBS that's being described as a supernatural medical drama. Wilson, whose only other TV gig was in HBO's Angels in America (he was nominated for an Emmy), would play an ultra-competitive surgeon whose life is changed when his ex-wife dies and gives him insight into the afterlife. The pilot is being written by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) and directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs). Deadline reports that filming for the pilot would be done in New York, where Wilson lives. Wilson’s new movie, Insidious, is scheduled to open April 1.
