CBS has given a put pilot commitment to an exorcism-themed drama from Joan of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall and producer Joe Roth.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the details of the project, from CBS Paramount Network Television and studio-based Joe Roth Television, are still sketchy, but it is understood to revolve around exorcists and others who investigate supernatural phenomena.
Hall, who is under an overall deal at CBS Par TV, is writing the script and is executive producing the project with Roth.
Bob Larson, an expert on cults, the occult and supernatural phenomena, is consulting on the project.
Roth is not a stranger to the subject of exorcism, having executive produced the 1990 feature film The Exorcist III.
