BURBANK, Calif., March 4 (UPI) -- NBC announced Tuesday Mira Sorvino and Victor Garber will star in "The Last Templar," a miniseries to be shot on location in Montreal and Morocco.

Production on the four-hour miniseries, based on Raymond Khoury's best-selling novel, is to begin in April.

The network said Sorvino will play Tess Chaykin, "a Manhattan archaeologist drawn into a fast-paced, romantic adventure concerning the lost secrets of the medieval Knights Templar."

Garber will play Monsignor De Angelis, a man who "steps in to help with the investigation" to retrieve a lost artifact.

Sorvino won an Oscar for her work in "Mighty Aphrodite." She recently starred in the big-screen drama "Reservation Road."
