“Bull” was created by Paul Attanasio, known for his work on “House” and “Homicide,” and Dr. Phil McGraw. Starring Michael Weatherly as Dr. Jason Bull, the trial consultant works with his team to use psychology, human intuition and high tech data to tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favor. The first season finale aired in May.
The show will air this fall on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS.
