CBS buys Silicon Valley medical drama from Parenthood's Jason Katims and Sarah Watson
CBS has given a pilot commitment for a medical drama set in Silicon Valley, created by writing duo Jason Katims and Sarah Watson—whose drama Parenthood will soon begin its sixth and final season.
According to Deadline, the drama will center on a controversial young tech titan who opens a cutting-edge hospital. The tech world has become a hot selling point for development, as seen in the rise of tech-inspired shows, such as HBO’s Silicon Valley and AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire. Along with this project, Katims will continue as executive producer of About a Boy, one of the few freshmen comedies that NBC renewed for a second season.
