The untitled drama will star Geena Davis (A League of their Own, The Fly) will star as an unconventional bail bondswoman and bounty hunter whose “eccentric personality and unusual tactics give her an advantage in a tough and unpredictable business,” the Turner Broadcasting System-owned channel said.

Inspired by the life of bounty hunter Mackenzie Green, Dean Devlin (Leverage) will direct the pilot for producers Electic Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

The pilot was written by Scott Prendergast and Amy Berg, who also executive produce the pilot with Devlin, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Tom Lassally and Michael Rotenberg. Davis is co-executive producer, while Devlin and Berg are also showrunners.
