EXCLUSIVE: As it picked up pilot King & Maxwell to series today, TNT has passed on another drama pilot, Trooper. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Trooper starred Mira Sorvino as a recently divorced female state trooper who is as unconventional at work as she is at home raising her three kids. The project was originally developed at CBS last season where it also went to pilot starring Sorvino. The TNT pilot, which co-starred Eion Bailey, was written by Aron Eli Coleite (Heroes) who executive produced with Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ensler for Warner Horizon. TNT today rendered a decision on its two procedural pilots. The network is yet to weigh in on its two action-adventure pilots, the Michael Bay-produced The Last Ship and the Howard Gordon-produced Legends.
