Peacock pic to reteam Edwards and Stringfield

'ER' thesps reunite for Bass-written 'Trade Off'

“ER” star Anthony Edwards and his former “ER” cast member Sherry Stringfield are reuniting for a two-hour NBC telefilm written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ron Bass (“My Best Friend’s Wedding,” “Rain Man”).

Edwards and his partner Dante Di Loreto will executive produce the two-hour telefilm, “Trade Off,” through their production company, Aviator Films, and Warner Bros. TV.

Stringfield is set to star as a single mother who, through her casework as a lawyer, uncovers the suspicious operations of an adoption agency after the disap-pearance of her daughter and nanny.

The telefilm marks Stringfield’s return to primetime TV after ankling “ER” in the middle of the show’s third season. The film was originally a feature script written by Bass, and Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk are reworking it for TV. Production begins in Los Angeles in November.

The “Trade Off” deal comes just one day after Edwards inked a new “ER” salary pact with Warner Bros. TV worth about $35 million over the next four years (Daily Variety, Aug. 4).
