TNT Casts Key Roles in Geena Davis Drama Deadline
A four-time Oscar nominee is among the latest cast additions for TNT’s upcoming Geena Davis project. Deadline.com reports that the untitled bounty hunter drama pilot has added Enrico Colantoni (“Flashpoint”), Gloria Reuben (“ER”) and four-time Academy Award nominee Marsha Mason (“The Middle”).
“Inspired by the real-life story of bounty hunter Mackenzie Green, the drama stars Davis as Mackenzie “Mack” Green, an unconventional bail bondswoman and bounty hunter whose eccentric personality and unusual tactics give her an advantage in a tough and unpredictable business,” the story reports. “Reuben will play Assistant D.A Kate Mickelson, a tenacious attorney with an honest and blunt relationship with Mack. Colantoni will play Wendell Hicks, Mack’s former accountant hired to run the financial desk at the bail bonds office. Mason plays Mack’s strong and independent mother Lloyd.”
The pilot comes from Dean Devlin‘s Electric Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts, and is written by Scott Prendergast and Amy Berg.
Deadline adds: “Devlin is set to direct the pilot; he and Berg will serve as showrunners and will executive produce with Prendergast, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Tom Lassally and Michael Rotenberg. Davis serves as co-executive producer.”
Mason had a string of Oscar nominations from 1974-1982, for “The Goodbye Girl,” “Chapter Two,” “Cinderella Liberty” and “Only When I Laugh” -- all for leading roles.
