Fall TV Season Intel: ‘A Gifted Man’ Adds Series Regular

Posted on June 27, 2011


Now is the time for the new crop of television series to make any adjustments, changes, or additions. CBS’ A Gifted Man is doing just that.

Sources tell me  the series–slated to premiere in the fall–is looking for an actress to play the role of Dr. Kate Stanzyk. The role of Stanzyk, a woman in hers 30s, will be introduced as a new love interest for the series’ leading character Michael, who is played by Patrick Wilson.

A Gifted Man centers on an ultra-competitive surgeon whose life is changed forever when his ex-wife dies and begins teaching him what life is all about from the here-after. It was created by Susannah Grant (The Soloist, Erin Brockovich).

Starting off as a recurring, the new character addition is expected (and according to my sources, planned) to become a regular.

Watch a trailer for the series below.
