Jennifer Beals Slated To Co-Star in CBS Drama Pilot "Widow Detective"

nullJennifer Beals will join Paula Marsha and John Corbett in the CBS drama pilot Widow Detective, directed by Davis Guggenheim. Beals will play Lainey, a "sexy, wry-humored" hair salon owner in the San Francisco valley who loses her LAPD husband on the job. Corbett will play Denny Brennan, a detective whose three partners die while on duty, Lainey's husband being one of them.

Brennan becomes a "surrogate husband" to Lainey and a restaurateur and mom of three named Jill, played by Marsha.

In the CBS TV Studios project, written by David Hubbard and produced by Carol Mendelsohn (CSI), Lainey, re-married but headed for divorce, knows Denny the best out of the rest of the wives and has the best shot at a committed relationship with him.

Lucky guy huh? He gets to console three grieving wives! I'm curious how this chauvinistic show will turn out.

We last told you about Beals' upcoming indie jazz film The Lord of Vynil last month, which she's set to star in and produce.
