Greg Berlanti’s Warner Bros. TV-based company has sold two more drama projects, both to CBS: The Shrine, written and executive produced by Nicholas Wootton, and Black Oak, written/exec produced by Julia Hart (The Keeping Room)
The Shrine, based on the upcoming book of the same name written by Wootton’s father, Gareth Wootton, is about a struggling Catholic hospital in Los Angeles, which becomes a sensation when patient after patient is miraculously cured of cancer. Could it truly be divine intervention? A young female doctor investigates these “miracles,” to discover that there may be a murderous impostor in the hospital.
Black Oak centers on a woman who inherits the haunted hotel that has plagued her family with a curse for generations, forcing her to confront her dysfunctional family’s many secrets, ghosts, and demons.
