CW Gets Medical Treatment From 'American Idol' Creator!
Post by: Sal
With The CW teaming up with the creator of "American Idol," you'd think a reality competition show would be in the works. Wrong.
The green network will explore the popular medical genre with a pilot from "Idol" creator Simon Fuller, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, titled "Austin Golden Hour" is a real-time hourlong drama that follows a team of young -- and suitably CW attractive -- emergency room surgeons and EMTs in the hectic and critical 60 minutes following a trauma.. As with any good drama, the workplace action will combine with the characters' personal interactions that include their love lives, jealousies and rivalries.
Lance Gentile ("Third Watch," "ER") and Mal Young ("Doctor Who") wrote the pilot.
Besides "Idol," Fuller is also the executive producer behind "So You Think You Can Dance," the "S Club 7" series, and on the big screen, "From Justin to Kelly" and "Spice World."
