'Medium' Creator Sells Two New Dramas To CBS

Using his unique ability to read and manipulate minds, Medium creator Glenn Gordon Caron has sold two drama projects to CBS—Near Dead and Motor City Shakedown—both of which he will write and executive produce.

Glenn Gordon Caron
In conjunction with Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions, Near Dead revolves around a police detective in New York City who undergoes a near death experience and may have witnessed his wife’s murder while he was out of his body. When he re-enters the force, he brings with him a new perspective on how to close those cases he previously thought were unsolvable. Meanwhile, he continues to relentlessly pursue the answers to who may have killed his wife and why. Caron executive produces with Ridley Scott and David Zucker.

Based on the book by Jonathan Wakins, Motor City Shakedown is a legal drama that tells the story of an ambitious rookie defense lawyer named Issabella Bright. When she finally lands her first big case, she is forced to team up with Darren Fletcher, a hardened and reckless lawyer who has fallen from grace and now runs his practice out of a booth in a bar. Caron is executive producing with Richard Shepard, Sean Furst and Bryan Furst.

In addition to writing for Taxi, Fame, and Remington Steele, Caron also created two other series, ABC's Moonlighting and CBS' Now And Again.

Another Barely - Jersey - Legal? Okay. Partial credits. As an aside: so, so many shows lately starring women in the lead (demand), and yet they're all seem to be written by men (hypocrysupply?)... *** As for those two shows, they sound a bit boring-ish (I admit to never having seen 'The Medium,' again, due to it, too, seeming boring-ish). *** Regardless of any of that __Two__ shows?(!) Who is this guy, Stephen King? Why not just do one really good show, instead... *** So, yeah, the Network being his bitch notwithstanding, there's something quite suspicious about him selling two. Because, again, quality-wise, if all efforts were placed on one, single show... you get the point. *** P.S. I actually just looked up 'The Medium' and, indeed, that sounds like a show I would never, ever watch. Its premise is the definition of boredom for yours truly (to be absolutely fair -though why- who knows, I may be stuck somewhere, end up watching it and actually liking it - it's possible though highly implausible). Anonypuss OUT!
