Produced by CBS TV Studios, it stars Patrick Wilson as ultra-competitive surgeon Michael, whose life is changed forever when his ex-wife Anna dies and begins teaching him what life is all about from the hereafter. The Gifted Man joins dramas The 2-2 (prev. Rookies), Unforgettable (prev. The Rememberer) and David Hornsby’s comedy How To Be a Gentleman, picked up earlier today; and drama Person of Interest and comedy Two Broke Girls, which were ordered Friday.
