CBS has passed on Hail Mary. An early frontrunner, the buddy PI pilot starring Minnie Driver eventually lost momentum at the network. But the project has been a favorite at producing studio Warner Bros TV, and I hear that it is now being shopped around to other networks. Produced by Joel Silver, Hail Mary centers on Mary Beth (Driver), a suburban single mom in Atlanta who teams with KZ (Brandon T. Jackson), a streetwise hustler, to solve crimes.
