Katharine McPhee Cast in CBS Pilot “Scorpion”

American Idol alum, and Smash star, Katharine McPhee has been cast in a drama pilot, Scorpion, for CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

Based on the life of Walter O’Brien, the drama revolves around Walter (Body of Proof’s Elyes Gabel) an eccentric genius and his international network of super-geniuses who form the last line of defense against the complex threats of the modern age.

McPhee will play Paige, a working-class hero and diner waitress who understands geniuses who becomes a nanny of sorts and translator for Walter’s super team of socially misunderstood masterminds.

Katharine starred for 2 seasons in Smash for NBC and is currently has a feature, Depravity, in the works.

No wonder Kat’s PR has been busy with damage control lately, leaking stories that she’s back with her husband, Nick Cokas in the wake of a cheating scandal a few months back.

Of course, just because a pilot is ordered, does not mean the series will hit the airwaves. CBS has to like what they see before deciding to give the series a green light.
