Pilot Season: NBC Picks Up Ironside Remake with Blair Underwood
The pilot tells the story of a tough, sexy but acerbic police detective who uses a wheelchair after being shot. But he is hardly limited by his disability, as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in the city.
The hourlong drama comes from Michael Caleo, who will write and executive-produce along with David Semel, Teri Weinberg, John Davis and Jon Fox. Universal TV, David Entertainment and Yellow Brick Road will produce.
The news comes one day after Semel's other pilot, Intelligence, was picked up by CBS.
