It looks one of our favorite singers turned actress is going to be very busy in 2013.

Jill Scott, aka Jilly from Philly, is set to c-star in the CBS pilot Second Sight, According to EURweb. The show will likely premiere in the fall.

Second Sight will center around Detective Ross Tanner (played by Jason Lee) who tries to hide the fact that he has an ocular disease that causes him to have hallucinations. But when he tries to catch a serial killer, he realizes that it’ll take his eyesight just as much as his experience as a cop to find him.

Scott will play Dr. Callier, the specialist who treats his disease.

Second Sight will also star Derek Luke, cast as Det. Paul Giroux, an overeager cop who is part of Tanner’s team.  He may or may not know about Tanner’s disease but either way, he wants his job.

Jill Scott is going to be pretty busy this year. In addition to this latest announcement, she’s also in the upcoming film Baggage Claim and she’ll be a performer at the 2013 Essence Festival.  Want more? Jill also casually mentioned on Twitter that she’ll be releasing two albums this year. Whew!

As for the Second Sight, CBS isn’t known for keeping an audience’s attention, especially black viewers, so we’ll see how this goes!

Does this sound like something you’d watch?
