29 November 2010 2:12 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku is returning to series television as the female lead in Mike Robe's TNT drama pilot Bird Dog, while  D.B. Sweeney has landed the lead in Dean Devlin's hourlong TBS pilot Brain Trust. Bird Dog is a mystery fashioned around an unlikely partnership of two cops who happen to be father and daughter. It centers on Gail McGrath (Dushku), who followed in her father's footsteps in becoming a police officer but had little else in common with him. She left the big city she had grown up in to move to a small Pacific Northwestern town where she was patrolling the streets until her dad, a NYC cop, showed up on her front doorstep to join her as her new partner. Now this father-daughter team, call sign "Bird Dog," is being put to the test -- not only in solving crimes, but with each other. »
