Alan Cumming is lead in new CBS series ‘Instinct’

Alan Cumming is returning to series television – this time as the leading man.

The former cast member of The Good Wife will star in the new CBS series Instinct, the network announced today.

Cumming plays a former CIA operative who has moved on from the agency to build a ‘normal’ life as a gifted professor and writer.

But he is pulled back into his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer who is on the loose.

‘Yay! My pilot got picked up! I’m going to be back on TV, y’alI!!’ Cumming tweeted today.

The series is based on a soon-to-publish James Patterson novel.

Cumming, a Tony winner for Cabaret, has been performing his one-man show live since The Good Wife left the air last year after six seasons.

He earned three Emmy nominations for his performance as political operative Eli Gold on the acclaimed series.

Cumming has also filmed a role in the upcoming movie Battle of the Sexes about the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs.

That film stars Emma Stone as King and Steve Carell as Riggs. Cumming plays legendary tennis fashion designer Ted Tinling.
