LOS ANGELES, July 17 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter is in talks with TNT to play a jaded Oklahoma City police detective tapped by an angel for redemption in "Grace."

Hunter's first foray into series TV follows TNT's successful formula of bringing big screen talent to the cable channel. Kyra Sedgewick's "The Closer" has become TV's most popular cable series, The Hollywood Reporter said Monday.

Hunter has been nominated for Academy Awards four times and took home the statuette in 1994 for "The Piano."

Her most recent film was Rodrigo Garcia's indie, "Nine Lives."
