Pilots: 'Anatomy,' 'Prison' Women Come to CBS


Elizabeth Reaser and Robin Tunney have booked female leads in a pair of CBS drama pilots.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reaser will star in "Mythological Ex," based on the Israeli series.

The "Grey's Anatomy" veteran plays a woman who learns from a psychic that the man of her dreams is a guy she's already dated and discarded. As a result, she begins to backtrack through her past relationships trying to find The One.

Other credits for Reaser include the series "Saved," as well as the feature "Sweet Land."

Tunney, meanwhile, will appear opposite Simon Baker in "The Mentalist."

Baker plays a mentalist who uses his powers of observation to aid police investigations. The trade says that Tunney will play "lead agent Teresa Lisbon."

Veronica for a little over a season on "Prison Break," Tunney has been seen on the big screen in "Cherish," "End of Days" and "The Craft."

In other CBS news, "Sleeper Cell" creators Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff have signed on to serve as executive producers and showrunners on CBS' "Eleventh Hour," assuming it goes to series.

The pilot, based on the British format, stars Rufus Sewell as a government advisor who travels the country with his female bodyguard (Marley Shelton) investigating abuses of science.

Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
