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)
SUPERNATURAL (The CW) - Christian Kane will drop by the show's final season as Leo Webb, "a former hunter and a friend of Dean Winchester. Although we don't know much about Leo, the fact that he's a "former hunter" who knows Dean without mention of Sam could mean be that he knows the older Winchester brother from his hunting days with dear old dad, back before Dean showed up in Sam's dorm room."
