The Sopranos alum Michael Imperioli has been tapped as the lead in Saint Francis, Chris Moynihan’s multi-camera comedy pilot for ABC. The project, from ABC Studios and Tagline, centers on Francis Quinlan (Imperioli), a blue-collar, no-nonsense Long Island cop and family man who butts heads with the modern, liberal world when his 29-year-old sister gets pregnant out of wedlock. This marks Imperioli’s return to ABC where he starred on two drama series, Detroit 1-8-7 and Life On Mars. He has a major recurring role on the upcoming seventh and final season of Showtime’s Californication.
