Jill Scott to Star in CBS Pilot ‘Second Sight’

Does Jill Scott have her eyes on an Emmy or Golden Globe? The Grammy-Award winning singer will lend her acting skills to the CBS pilot, Second Sight. The show is based on a British series of the same name and described as “a gothic psychological thriller about Tanner (Jason Lee), the lead detective with the New Orleans Police Department who is hiding the fact that he has an ocular disorder that causes him to have horrifying hallucinations.”

Jill will star as Dr. Callier, a specialist who treats Tanner’s ocular disease. Derek Luke will also co-star as Detective Paul Giroux, a member of Tanner’s team. This is Scott’s fourth foray into television. She was most recently seen in Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias in addition to The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and and episode of Law & Order: SVU.  

We think it’s safe to say black women are rocking television in 2013!
