TNT pilot bets on thesp

Martin will direct Scott in 'Saved'

Tom Everett Scott has signed to star in the TNT series pilot “Saved” from exec producer David Manson, Fox 21 and Imagine Television.

Scott will play a San Francisco paramedic and gambling addict who finds his only thrills in the breakneck pace of his job. Omari Hardwick (“Beauty Shop”), Michael McMillian (“Veronica Mars”) and Tracy Vilar (“Full Frontal”) also star.

Production starts next week. Manson wrote the pilot to be directed by Darnell Martin.

“Saved” is one of three pilots under series consideration at TNT. Others are “Talk to Me,” about hostage crisis negotiators, from Dean Devlin and Lions Gate TV (Daily Variety, Aug. 29), and “Grace,” about a jaded female police officer turning her life around, from Aaron Spelling, E. Duke Vincent and Nancy Miller.

Scott last starred in the Los Angeles stage production of “Dead End” and the A&E yuletide telepic “Karroll’s Christmas.” He next appears opposite Diane Keaton in the CBS movie “Surrender Dorothy.”
