Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to produce medical drama

Will and Jada Pinkett SmithThe Smiths are becoming entertainment moguls, aren't they? They already produce the CW comedy All of Us; now Will and Jada are pairing with a writer-producer team to create a medical drama for CBS. Just what we need, right? Well, this one has the potential to be a little different: the show will follow the doctors at the Centers of Disease Control as they battle viruses and other diseases that threaten to become pandemics (the pilot episode: bird flu... it's a natural!).

The writer-producer team that the Smiths are joining are Jan Nash and Jennifer Levin, who met while working on Without a Trace.

Here in Canada, we call it ReGenesis, produced by TMN (the Canuck equivalent of HBO), which means colourful dialogue that CBS won't touch.

I believe "The Burning Zone" from UPN about 10 years ago was similar, although it had more supernatural/scifi elements to it.

Didn't we have this show already --- called Medical Investigation?
