IN BETWEEN LIVES (NBC, New!) - Moira Kirland ("Madam Secretary") has scored a pilot commitment from the Peacock for a new drama which "centers on a mysterious young woman who reluctantly uses her gift of clairvoyance to help a veteran LAPD detective and a damaged ex-FBI outsider solve the most unnerving and challenging cases the city encounters."

The series follows the two as Nathan grows accustomed to life away from his loved ones, and the alive Nora struggles to stay afloat working her job alongside Nathan in the afterlife." (Deadline.com)
