Chicago PD alum Sophia Bush plots TV return with new CBS spy pilot

Sophia BushMore than a year removed from her time on Chicago PDis there a chance that we’re going to be seeing Sophia Bush back on TV? Based on the new reports that are out there, this seems to be a strong possibility.

According to a new report coming in right now via Deadline, Bush is set to star in a new CBS pilot entitled (at least for the time being) Surveillance. This is a project executive-produced by Matt Reeves alongside writer David C. White and director Patricia Riggen. As of right now, this series has a production commitment, which means that it will at least get a pilot unless there is some unexpected snag. This is a co-production between CBS and 20th Century Fox TV, which is the first collaboration we’ve seen for the two in a little while now.

The series is currently described as a “complex and timely spy thriller centered around the head of communications for the NSA (Bush), a charming operative who finds her loyalties torn between protecting the government’s secrets and her own.” It’s an intriguing premise, even if it’s hardly the most revolutionary of ideas. There are a number of spy-centric dramas out there at the moment, especially with Jack Ryan now on the air over at Netflix.

Yet, we understand the appeal here for CBS — it’s fairly obvious! When you’ve got a talent of Bush’s caliber on board your series, you’re obviously going to want to make the most of it as best as you can. Unfortunately, you’re going to be waiting a good while to see it, provided that it even makes it to the air in the first place. More than likely, the earliest that you’re going to get a chance to see Surveillance is at some point in the fall of 2019.
