CBS picks up A Gifted Man, featuring Julie Benz. Benz to play sister to a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the "hereafter".

If only Julie were the deceased ex-wife, this could be an awesome Dexter season.

(cue chorus of "TOO SOON!")
I'm looking forward to seeing Julie on TV again. No Ordinary Family was uneven but I loved her on Buffy/Angel and Dexter. Worried about its Friday night timeslot, and kinda sickened that this is extremely similar to the show they cancelled out of the blue last season, Ghost Whisperer (one of my faves).
This one looks not so good. Very much a boring CBS procedural for old people. Julie deserves better.
Speaking for boring old people - this doesn't interest me at all. :)

Wow, good on her to pick up another series regular part - her third in as many seasons I think?
She's worked steadily for a long time and put together a pretty nice career. Buffy => Angel => Dexter => Desperate Housewives => No Ordinary Family => this

I do like the two actresses, but CBS not so much.
