Skeet Ulrich of Jericho fame was cast in a John Wells produced medical pilot for CBS.   According to THR the pilot "centers on a mobile medical team that travels the U.S. helping those in need get through life-or-death medical crises."

Hopefully the third time will be the charm for Ulrich at CBS, after Jericho Ulrich was cast in in last year's drama pilot "Back," but it wasn't picked-up to series.

After extremely successful turns at NBC with ER and  The West Wing Wells probably can't get the stink of the Southland experience at NBC off of him fast enough. Southland was ultimately picked up by TNT, but hasn't been a ratings success there, and some comments by an  executive at TNT have us wondering if parent company Time Warner didn't force TNT to take on the show after NBC bailed.

Wells' production company John Wells Productions operates out of Warner Bros Television, also owned by Time Warner.
