Michael Weatherly may have left NCIS, but he’s remaining on CBS in the new series BULL. Weatherly stars as Dr. Jason Bull, the “president of a company that does trial analytics”. The company tracks the lives of potential jurors and helps defense lawyers figure out the optimal jury to acquit their clients. And Jason Bull is “the master at understanding what causes people to do what they do”.
BULL is based on the life of Dr. Phil McGraw, who was a litigation consultant before the DR. PHIL SHOW. In the series, Bull combines psychology, human intution and high tech data to figure out what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick. Join him are his quick-witted brother-in-law, Benny Colón, who plays a defense attorney in mock trials; Marissa Morgan, a cutting-edge neurolinguistics expert from the Department of Homeland Security; former NYPD detective Danny James, the firm’s tough but relatable investigator; haughty millennial hacker Cable McCrory, who is responsible for gathering cyber intelligence; and Chunk Palmer, a fashion-conscious stylist and former All-American lineman who fine-tunes clients’ appearances for trial.
