LOS ANGELES, March 23 (UPI) -- TNT says it has ordered 10 episodes of "Perception," its new U.S. drama series starring former "Will & Grace" actor Eric McCormack.

"Perception" is about a neuroscientist who works to solve complex criminal cases. It co-stars Rachael Leigh Cook, Arjay Smith and Kelly Rowan.

Alan Poul directed and served as executive producer for the pilot.

Produced by ABC Studios, "Perception" is expected to premiere on TNT in 2012.

"When we saw the pilot for 'Perception,' it confirmed what we thought from the first pitch: It's a perfect fit for TNT's original series lineup," Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, said in a statement Tuesday. "With its blend of intensity, emotion, humor, smart storytelling, sharp direction and a buzz-worthy performance from Eric McCormack, 'Perception' is a hugely entertaining show we believe TNT viewers will love."
