Bakula stars in ‘NetForce’

Mini based on characters created by novelist Clancy

Scott Bakula has been tapped to star in ABC-TV’s four-hour miniseries “Tom Clancy’s NetForce,” in which he will play Alex Michaels, a deputy commander of NetForce, a new division of the FBI which polices the online universe.

Michaels is promoted to commander in the wake of his best friend’s murder and is charged with finding the killer. He gets distracted when it becomes apparent that somebody is trying to infiltrate the computer system at NetForce, an act that could have devastating and perhaps global repercussions.

“Net Force” is based on a story and characters by Clancy and Steve Pieczenik, penned for the small screen by Lionel Chetwynd and directed by Rob Lieberman.

Production began last week in Los Angeles and will then move to locations in Virginia and Washington, D.C. Bakula’s deal was brokered by ICM’s Brian Mann.

Bakula, perhaps best known as the star of the NBC-TV series, “Quantum Leap,” will divide his time between “NetForce” and a starring role in “Luminarius,” an independent film, adapted from the play of the same name.

Bakula will play an attorney who falls in love with his counterpart in a divorce case in “Luminarius,” a romantic comedy.
