Geena Davis could be returning to TV. The veteran actress will star in an upcoming pilot from Leverage showrunner Dean Devlin for TNT.

The untitled bounty hunter drama will star Davis as a bail bondswoman and bounty hunter with an unconventional way of doing things. The project is inspired by real-life bounty hunter Mackenzie Green.

Davis, who won an Oscar for 1988's The Accidental Tourist, last starred on the ABC series Commander in Chief, for which she won a Golden Globe.
