Eleventh Hour CBS Remake, spinoff or sequel? Remake Source material: A four-episode British series from 2006 that starred Patrick Stewart and Ashley Jensen. What's new: Based on the little bit we've seen, it appears that the scientific crises a government advisor (Rufus Sewell) and his FBI handler (Marley Shelton) investigate will be front and center and the prickly relationship between the two characters will be de-emphasized somewhat. What's not: Other than that, CBS looks to be hewing pretty closely to the template set forth in the British show, with Sewell's character called to protect the public from the dangers of cloning, viral outbreaks and the like.
