EXCLUSIVE: Bill Engvall is back at Turner. The actor-comedian, who headlined his won sitcom on TBS, is set to star in and executive produce an hourlong project in development at sibling TNT. John Tinker is set to write, executive produce and showrun the project, which centers on a fish-out-of-water detective from Texas (Engvall) who transfers to the NYPD. JP Williams of Parallel Entertainment will produce. This marks Tinker’s return to TNT where he recently served as executive producer/showruner on medical drama Hawthorne.
