Looks as though TNT will not go forward with its Geena Davis bounty hunter drama series. According to sources with knowledge of the situation, the network has decided not to take the next step after seeing the pilot, which was shot in April. Something to do with its tone. This project, from Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts, was one of the cable net’s more high-profile projects. Written by Scott Prendergast and Amy Berg, it was inspired by the real-life story of bounty hunter Mackenzie Green. Davis was cast in the role of the unconventional bail bondswoman and bounty hunter, whose eccentric personality and unusual tactics give her an advantage in a tough and unpredictable business. Back in March, when Deadline last checked in on the project, Men Of A Certain Age star Scott Bakula had been cast, marking his return to TNT playing Mackenzie’s former husband, a cop. The tony cast also included Gloria Reuben, Marsha Mason, and Enrico Colantoni. Reuben was to have played an Assistant DA. Colantoni was cast as Mackenzie’s former accountant, and Mason was to play Mack’s tough-as-nails mother.
