Based on the early life and career of daytime talk-show host "Dr. Phil" McGraw, Bull is being produced by Amblin TV and CBS TV Studios. Jackson will play Chunk, a former football player who helps prepare defendants to face a judge and jury for a company called Trial Sciences Inc.
Jackson has been seen on Broadway previously in In The Heights, Holler If Ya Hear Me, The Bronx Bombers (as Derek Jeter) and Memphis.
