A&E is loading up on "Sugarloaf."

The network has picked up the hourlong pilot starring Matt Passmore with a 13-episode order.

The Fox TV Studios drama centers on Jim Longworth (Passmore), a brilliant-but-difficult Chicago homicide detective who's wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain's wife and forced into exile. Longworth relocates to Sugarloaf, a sleepy Gulf Coast resort town in Florida where life can be less beautiful than it first seems.

Kiele Sanchez and Carlos Gomez co-star. Production is set to begin in Miami this winter for a summer premiere.

"Sugarloaf" was one of two drama pilots that A&E picked up last fall, along with "The Quickening," which starred Radha Mitchell as a bipolar homicide detective. The network passed on "Quickening" this month.

"We have only one spot for the summer, and when we screened 'Sugarloaf' we knew this is the one," A&E senior »

A&E narrowing scripted series contenders

7 February 2010 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A&E has narrowed down the field of scripted series contenders.

The cable network has passed on drama pilot "The Quickening," which starred Radha Mitchell as a bipolar homicide detective.

That leaves drama "Sugarloaf" as the only pilot in consideration for a series pickup. The project stars Matt Passmore as Jim, a Chicago cop with a sly sense of humor who gets kicked off the force after being shot and wrongfully accused by his ex-captain of having an affair with his wife. After receiving a payout, Jim moves to a small Florida town and joins the state police.

A&E brass are said to be high on "Sugarloaf," but a final decision is expected to be made toward the end of the month.

The plan for "Sugarloaf" and "Quickening," both from Fox TV Studios, has been for at least one to spawn a series to launch in the summer.

"Sugarloaf" was written by Clifton Campbell, »
