Zachary Quinto has been tapped to lead the pilot of upcoming medical drama Wolf.

The Star Trek Beyond actor had been cast in the lead role of Warner Bros Television and NBC's planned medical drama, titled Wolf, according to Variety.

The broadcaster first ordered a pilot for the series in January.

Inspired by Oliver Sacks's books - The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and An Anthropologist on Mars - the show was written and would be executive produced by Michael Grassi. Lee Toland Krieger has signed on to direct and executive produce.

Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Leigh London Redman will executive produce for Berlanti Productions, Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate will executive produce for Fabel Entertainment, while Jonathan Cavendish, Andy Serkis, and Will Tennant have signed on to executive produce for The Imaginarium.
