After the success of HBO’s True Blood, which was based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, it’s not surprising that network television is now looking for their own project based on another set of Harris’ books.
Reportedly, CBS is developing a new series called Grave Sight that will be based on Harris’ Harper Connelly novels. Ridley Scott and Tony Scott are also on board as executive producers for the mystery show.
The books follow Harper Connelly, who is able to hear and see the last moments of the dead after she was struck by lightning as a teenager.
But, can the quirky series work on network TV as well as True Blood has done on HBO? The Scotts are also producers on The Good Wife, which continues to be one of CBS’ biggest hits, so it seems having their names attached to the project bodes well for the show.
Ghost Whisperer, which was canceled last year, was also about a woman who had insight into the dead and that also did well for CBS in its 5 seasons, another reason they may have persued this particular series of novels.
What do you think? Do you think that Grave Sight will do well on CBS? Will you be watching?
