The actor will play Donnie, "a charismatic, fast-rising Assistant U.S. Attorney recently transferred back to Chicago," according to the network.

Scott's character is "less concerned with doing what's right than with what's right for Donnie. He's a blue-collar, Irish-Catholic kid from the south side who loves the White Sox. While Donnie claims his transfer back to Chicago was completely random, he has a hidden agenda involving Kate (Rachel Leigh Cook), his soon-to-be ex-wife," TNT said in a release.
