CBS Orders Scripted Dr. Phil Pilot Bull

It will be based on Dr. Phil's pre-Oprah career

Sadie Gennis

CBS has ordered a pilot for a Dr. Phil-inspired drama called Bull, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The project will follow the Oprah-approved psychologist's early career when he ran a trial consulting service. Donnie Brasco's Paul Attanasio and Dr. Phil McGraw himself will write the pilot and executive-produce. Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and McGraw's oldest son, Jay, will also executive-produce.
