Okay this doesn’t bode well for a Sarah-Seth reunion on Parenthood: John Corbett, better known as the charming drunk who waltzed in and out of the Braverman Family on the NBC drama, will headline a new drama in the works for CBS this fall.

Corbett will play the Widow Detective, a decorated police detective who becomes a surrogate husband, lover and father to the families of partners who died in the line of duty.

The actor’s previous credits include United States of Tara, Lucky and Sex and the City.
