BULLIt’s not exactly a secret that the CBS hit drama Bull has famous roots: The show’s premise — and lead character, Dr. Jason Bull — were inspired by the pre-TV career of Dr. Phil McGraw, who was well-known in the legal field for founding one of the country’s most successful trial consulting firms. On the show, the character is played by Michael Weatherly, who met McGraw while working on NCIS and has been friends with him ever since. Weatherly told us that having access to the man who lived his character’s life has been a valuable resource, but he won’t tell us exactly how valuable.
