Oscar-nominated actress Sharon Stone, best known for her work in feature films such as “Basic Instinct” and “Casino,” will star in a new drama series on TNT. Deadline.com reports that the cable channel gave a 10-episode order to the series, “Agent X.”
The action drama will debut in the second half of 2015. Along with Stone, it stars Jeff Hephner as a secret agent who is ready to jump into action at the call of the U.S. vice president, played by Stone.
“‘Agent X’ is a perfect fit for TNT’s expanding lineup of action-dramas,” said Lillah McCarthy, senior vice president of TNT and TBS Original Productions. “It’s a slick, high-energy thrill-ride with lots of twists and turns, big action sequences and kick-ass stunts.”
Stone won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award for her 1995 performance in “Casino.” She won an Emmy for outstanding guest actress in a drama series in 2004 for “The Practice.”
