SOUL SURVIVOR (CBS, New!) - Christopher Silber has sold a new drama to the Eye in which "after a private investigator with a shady past is the lone survivor of a plane crash, his new lease on life is complicated by the fact that his seat mate, a dogged former DA and perennially optimistic do-gooder, becomes his de facto partner pushing him to take on clients with nowhere else to turn. To further complicate matters, she's dead - a ghost that only he can see and who is always by his side." CBS Television Studios-based Fulwell 73 is behind the hour with Ben Winston, James Corden, Leo Pearlman and Jeff Grosvenor likewise executive producing. (Deadline.com)
