The series about organ transplants also features The L Word‘s Katherine Moennig. Each story is told from the point of view of a doctor, recipient and donor.
The show will go head to head with Desperate Housewives, amongst others.
CBS also officially picks up Medium.
“If Ghost Whisperer and Numb3rs had an offspring, it would be Medium,” said entertainment president Nina Tassler.
O’Loughlin, who won an avid fanbase from Moonlight, also gave a guest performance in Criminal Minds which airs on Seven next week.
