Peter Facinelli has been tapped as the male lead opposite Marsha Thomason in Zoobiquity,Fox’s light medical procedural pilot. Also set for a lead role in the project is 24 alumna Kim Raver.
Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers, Zoobiquity follows the unlikely pairing of Dr. Kara Martins (Thomason), a successful, driven cardiologist as she risks career suicide by teaming with Dr. Lucas Cort (Facinelli), a brilliant, socially-challenged veterinarian who relates better to animals than people. They try to put aside their competitive natures to cure the incurable using a unique blend of cross-species medicine that’s never been tried before.
Raver will play Dr. Julia Fowler, the chief of medicine at Chicago Hospital
