by Evette Dionne

Jill ScottJilly from Philly is a proverbial superwoman. The soul crooner is still rousing love through music while balancing motherhood and a hectic tour schedule. Scott’s dominant strut continues with a new venture into the acting world. The “No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” star has nabbed a co-starring role in the CBS pilot, “Second Sight.”

The pilot is based on a UK series and will also star Derek Luke, Jason Lee and other A-list actors. Scott plays Dr. Callier, a specialist who assists Lee’s character (Det. Ross Tanner) with a unique autoimmune virus.

Before heading to the small screen, Miss Jill Scott will also co-star with Luke in “Baggage Claim,” a romantic comedy written and directed by David E. Talbert.
