Bull, which will be written by Dr. Phil himself, along with House's Paul Attanasio, is inspired by McGraw's pre-fame career as a legal defense consultant. According to THR, Weatherly will play Dr. Bull, the head of a company that analyzes juries. Dr. Bull "has a physicality and feral intelligence that makes him magnetic to women, and a bruising candor." These are not words that anyone other than Dr. Phil would use to describe Dr. Phil, but Dr. Phil is writing this himself.
