Mira Sorvino has now closed her deal to star in CBS’ Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama pilot Trooper. This marks the first series for the Oscar winner, who had been approached for pilots a number of 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. Sorvino, repped by ICM and Untitled, will next be seen in Nancy Savoca’s Union Square, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
