Stockard Channing

As a big fan of Stockard Channing, I’m pretty excited to hear this bit of news. According to Deadline.com, the veteran actress has signed on to star in NBC’s pilot 17TH PRECINCT.

The series is an ensemble cop drama with supernatural elements and comes from Battlestar Galactica developer/executive producer Ron Moore. From Sony Pictures TV, the show is set in the fictional town of Excelsior, where magic and supernatural elements rule over science.

Channing has been cast in the role of Mira, a fiercely intelligent former homicide detective who’s working in the robbery division of the 17th Precinct.

Not only am I happy to hear that Channing has got herself a new series, I’m also very intrigued by the storyline. It sounds like something I’d love to watch, as long as it’s pulled off right.
