Fox Orders Medical Drama Pilot 'The Beast'

Fox has ordered a pilot for medical drama The Beast.

The show is being produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television and Neal Baer’s Baer Bones.

In each episode, a doctor with his own clinical fear of death faces three challenging medical cases. Two will live one will die, but the doctor never stops fighting the odds, Fox says.

Baer and Dawn DeNoon are the pilot's executive producers and writers. Jessica Shulman is also an executive producer.

Jon has been business editor of Broadcasting+Cable since 2010. He focuses on revenue-generating activities, including advertising and distribution, as well as executive intrigue and merger and acquisition activity. Just about any story is fair game, if a dollar sign can make its way into the article. Before B+C, Jon covered the industry for TVWeek, Cable World, Electronic Media, Advertising Age and The New York Post. A native New Yorker, Jon is hiding in plain sight in the suburbs of Chicago.
