The original UK series starred Clive Owen as a maverick cop who develops a rare disease and starts going blind.
My Name Is Earl star Lee will play the lead role of detective Tanner in the new CBS version, TVLine reports.
Lee's Tanner will develop an ocular disorder that causes him to experience strange visions and hallucinations, which he utilises to solve crimes.
Homeland's Michael Cuesta has written the new Second Sight pilot and will exec produce with CSI's Carol Mendelsohn. Original series creator Paula Milne is also attached to the project as an executive producer.
