TNT has given the go-ahead to drama series “Truth in Advertising,” from the creators of “The Closer,” Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin.
The show stars Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh as ad executives whose friendship and professional relationship is put to the test when one of them is promoted to creative director at their firm.
The series’ cast includes Geoffrey Arend, Sarah Clarke, Mike Damus, Griffin Dunne and Monica Potter (“Boston Legal”).
“We are thrilled to be working on this superb drama with the creative talents who brought us ‘The Closer,’” said Michael Wright, senior VP of the content creation group at TNT, TBS and TCM. “And we are especially happy to have such a stellar cast.”
Shephard and Robin will be on board as executive producers, as will “The Closer” writers Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny.
TNT has ordered 13 episodes of the series, scheduled to premiere in 2009.
