LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- TNT says it has ordered a pilot for an untitled bounty hunter drama starring Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Geena Davis.

"Leverage's" Dean Devlin is to direct the pilot for Electric Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts.

"The dramatic and quirky project casts Davis 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 show is inspired by the real-life story of Mackenzie Green," TNT said in a news release Friday.

The pilot script for the show was written by Scott Prendergast and Amy Berg.

Prendergast, Berg and Devlin serve as executive producers on the project along with John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Tom Lassally and Michael Rotenberg.

Davis, 56 -- who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "The Accidental Tourist" -- serves as co-executive producer, while Devlin and Berg are the showrunners.

Davis' film credits include "The Fly," "Beetlejuice," "Thelma & Louise," "A League of Their Own" and "Speechless." She starred in the TV series "Commander in Chief."
