'Numbers' star cast in ABC's 'Truth' pilot
Rob Morrow joins legal drama opposite Joely RichardsonA second "Numbers" star has booked a pilot.
Rob Morrow has been tapped to star opposite Joely Richardson in ABC's drama pilot "The Whole Truth."
The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Truth" is a legal drama that shows the defense and prosecution sides equally. It centers on New York Kathryn Pearle (Richardson), a successful New York prosecutor.
For Morrow, the casting is formally in second position to veteran crime drama "Numbers," whose chances for returning next season are slim.
In November, CBS cut the sixth season order of the show from 22 to 16 episodes.
Morrow joins fellow "Numbers" lead man David Krumholtz who was also cast in a pilot in second position, Fox's comedy "Tax Men."
