Katharine McPhee Crime Drama ‘Scorpion’ Picked up By CBS

Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Art Auction Benefit

Scorpion, a crime drama starring Katharine McPhee, has been picked up by CBS. The announcement was made on Friday, in the midst of TV network announcements of pickups and cancellations.

A synopsis of the pilot, ordered last March:

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.

Good for the American Idol season 5 runner up, who has landed on her feet after the cancellation of her first TV show, Smash, last year after two seasons.
