Clive Owen in Second Sight
British series Second Sight is getting a second launch — this time in the U.S.
CBS has ordered a pilot based on the series. The gothic psychological thriller follows a detective who is suddenly infected with an autoimmune virus that causes hallucinations that reflect his subconscious. He soon discovers that catching the killer depends on insight as much as eyesight.

The U.S. adaptation comes from Homeland executive producer Michael Cuesta, who wrote the pilot along with his brother Gerald Cuesta. Both would also executive-produce, and Michael will direct the pilot. He has directed several episodes of Homeland, including the pilot and the Season 2 finale, as well as the pilots for Elementary, Blue Bloods and Dexter.
CSI executive producer Carol Mendelsohn will also serve as an executive producer, as will Julie Weitz, Nick Reed, Phil Goldfine and Paula Milne.
