CURE, THE (FOX)
DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:

STATUS:
previously in development (2007-2008 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release) From executive producers Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind," "Mr. & Mrs. Smith") and Patrick Massett & John Zinman ("Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," "Friday Night Lights") comes a medical thriller in which one brilliant man is willing to put his life and freedom on the line to bring hope to those with nowhere else to turn. Dr. GRAYDEN HALL (Oded Fehr, "Sleeper Cell," "UC: Undercover") was once a titan of the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. A storied doctor, world-renowned researcher and ruthless businessman, he was a key architect of this multi-trillion-dollar business. But when personal tragedy struck, Grayden was forced to reexamine his life, his work, and the industry he helped build. Realizing that the healthcare system is broken, Grayden went rogue seeking out the cutting-edge medical therapies and fringe thinking the medical establishment can't or won't support. Working with Grayden is an elite team of medical researchers and physicians who, through unconventional means, bring radical and untested new therapies directly to desperate people in need of a cure: Dr. DARREN ELLIOTT (Anson Mount, "In Her Shoes," "Conviction"), whose tour in Iraq as a battlefield surgeon makes him no stranger to guerilla medicine; ANDIE MALIK (Liz Vassey, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation"), a genius in biotech devices; and JORGE ROBLES (Esai Morales, "NYPD Blue"), an expert in stem cell technology. Aided by KENNEDY ERICSON (Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, "NYPD Blue," "The Jamie Foxx Show"), a lawyer with the air of a carnivore, they will have to stay one step ahead of outside forces that threaten to expose their clandestine operation forces willing to stop at nothing to protect the wealth and power the healthcare system hoards. Grayden's genius and newfound sense of mission will guide him, but he'll also draw upon the cutthroat business techniques he cultivated in his former life as he takes on old allies who have become intractable foes. Directed and executive-produced by Danny Cannon ("CSI"), this provocative series from Warner Bros. Television will have viewers asking the question: If your life were on the line and you had nowhere to turn, who else would you trust to deliver you THE CURE?
