Mira Sorvino is in final negotiations to star in CBS’ Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama pilot Trooper. This would mark the first series for the Oscar winner, who had been approached for pilots several times over the years. Written by Aron Eli Coleite, Trooper centers on KJ Flaxton (Sorvino), a common-sense mother-turned-New York state trooper. Craig Gillespie is directing the pilot, which he is executive producing with Coleite, Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. CBS and Bruckheimer have had success with procedural dramas fronted by feature actors making their series debuts, including CSI, starring William Petersen, and its offshoot CSI: NY, toplined by Gary Sinise. Sorvino, repped by ICM and Untitled, will next be seen in Nancy Savoca’s Union Square, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
