TNT Backs Away From Geena Davis Bounty Hunter Drama Series

10 July 2013 11:34 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Looks as though TNT will not go forward with its Geena Davis bounty hunter drama series. According to sources with knowledge of the situation, the network has decided not to take the next step after seeing the pilot, which was shot in April.  Something to do with its tone. This project, from Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts, was one of the cable net’s more high-profile projects. Written by Scott Prendergast and Amy Berg, it was inspired by the real-life story of bounty hunter Mackenzie Green. Davis was cast in the role of the unconventional bail bondswoman and bounty hunter, whose eccentric personality and unusual tactics give her an advantage in a tough and unpredictable business.

18 January 2013 6:34 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For many actresses, particularly ones over the dismaying low age studios films have as an unofficial cut-off, TV's become the main sanctuary for richer female characters -- which may be why Geena Davis is headed back to TV after a stint as the heroine of ABC's White House drama "Commander in Chief" in 2005-2006.

She'll play an unconventional bondswoman whose eccentric approach to the job gives her an advantage in a tough business... eh, whatever, the drama's based on the real-life story of San Francisco bailbond agent Mackenzie Green, who was profiled in the New Yorker in 2003. Scott Prendergast ("Kabluey") and Amy Berg wrote the script, while Dean Devlin, whose TNT con artists series "Leverage" was canceled in December, »
