Jill Scott
has landed a co-starring role in the CBS drama pilot Second Sight, from Homeland's Michael Cuesta.

Ms Scott joins Derek Luke, Kim Dickens, Erik Jensen, Madison Moellers and Jason Lee, who stars in the project that's based on the UK series of the same name by Paula Milne, as a Det. Ross Tanner, who is suddenly afflicted with an autoimmune virus that causes hallucinations that reflect his subconscious, and which interferes with/informs his investigations.

While Luke will play Det. Paul Giroux, described as a new member of Tanner's team, who's full of himself, overly-eager, and is after Tanner's job, Jill Scott will play a Dr. Callier, the specialist who tends to Tanner’s illness.

CSI's Carol Mendelsohn will executive produce the drama alongside Julie Weitz, Nick Reed, Phil Goldfine and Paula Milne.

Up next for both Scott and Luke, is David E. Talbert's romcom, Baggage Claim.

    In the original series Clive Owen's character was going blind from a rare eye disease.

    The original series is excellent, and really boosted Clive Owens' career. But what is this autoimmune virus stuff? I just wish Hollywood would focus on coming up with original material instead of remaking already well-done properties that aren't exactly hidden in a vault somewhere.
