The project, from producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI), stars Mira Sorvino as a recently divorced state trooper who is as unconventional at work as she is at home raising her three kids. Bailey will play her partner on the job, a widowed dad with a much more by-the-book approach to policing. (The role was originally played by Jay Hernandez when the pilot was in development at CBS last spring. The Eye network passed on the Warner Bros.-produced pilot, but TNT ordered a new incarnation in September.)
In addition to his recurring Once gig — he appeared as August in flashbacks in last Sunday’s episode — Bailey’s credits include Covert Affairs, ER and Band of Brothers.
