He’s spent some time in Seattle Grace on Grey’s Anatomy, and he’s walked the streets of Cougar Town, now Scott Foley has been cast in medical drama pilot The Doctor.

Christine Lahti is the star of the show, playing mom who reconnects with her grown-up kids when she joins the family’s medical practice. Lahti’s fellow Law & Order: SVU veteran Michael Boatman is also on board. Foley will play Lahti’s character’s son, a talented surgeon who may not be the perfect man Emily thought she’d raised. Also just cast: Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Showgirls), who will play a partner in the family practice.

But man, that title. If this show is a hit, will CBS order The Cop and The Lawyer next?
