'A Gifted Man' Series Premiere: Anna Tells Michael How She Died (VIDEO)

There's truth to the old saying that opposites attract, and that truth was at the heart of the central relationship in 'A Gifted Man' (Fri., 8PM ET on CBS). Friday nights on CBS are no strangers to ghostly apparitions, but this may be the first time that a ghost is one of the stars of the show. Michael Holt ( Patrick Wilson ) is a neurosurgeon who almost makes Dr. House look like a great guy. He's a jerk, but his ex-wife Anna (Jennifer Ehle) was one of the kindest and giving people in the world. Thus he works for fat checks while she ran a free clinic. And yet, when he reconnected with her after several years, he was thrilled to see her. But then he found out she had died in a car accident not long before. Suddenly, he was questioning his sanity and health and all the while she kept coming to him.
