TNT Orders Pilot for Bounty Hunter Drama Starring Geena Davis

TNT has ordered a pilot for an untitled bounty hunter drama starring Oscar(R)-winning, Emmy(R)-nominated actress Geena Davis (The Accidental Tourist, Commander in Chief). The dramatic and quirky project casts Davis as an unconventional bail bondswoman and bounty hunter whose eccentric personality and unusual tactics give her an advantage in a tough and unpredictable business. The show is inspired by the real-life story of Mackenzie Green.

The pilot script for TNT's bounty hunter drama was written by Scott Prendergast and Amy Berg, with Dean Devlin set to direct. Prendergast, Berg and Devlin serve as executive producers on the project along with John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Tom Lassally and Michael Rotenberg. Davis serves as co-executive producer, while Devlin and Berg are the showrunners. The project comes to TNT from Electric Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts.

This marks Devlin's third TNT project. He previously served as executive producer on TNT's caper series Leverage, which ended its five-year run in December, as well as TNT's The Librarian trio of films.

TNT is television's destination for drama. Seen in 99 million households and ranking among cable's top networks, TNT is home to such original drama series as Rizzoli & Isles, Falling Skies, Dallas, Major Crimes, Perception, Franklin & Bash, Southland and the upcoming Monday Mornings.
