Deadline reports that the pilot has been penned by former The Shield writer Glen Mazzara.
The series will focus on "a burnt-out doctor who joins a neighbourhood medical clinic".
Mazzara, who currently serves as showrunner on TNT medical drama Hawthorne, will executive produce alongside Tolan.
The project has received a script commitment from Fox and will be co-produced by Sony TV.
Tolan is currently writing the pilot for upcoming NBC sitcom Brave New World and will also executive produce an untitled half-hour comedy from writer DJ Nash for ABC.
