Will & Grace’s Eric McCormack is set to not only produce, but also play the lead role in TNT’s dramatic pilot “Perception”.
This marks McCormack’s third project with TNT after previously starring in the 2009 series “Trust Me” and co-producing the 2007 pilot “Imperfect Union.”
“Eric McCormack is an intelligent, intuitive and versatile actor who is adept at both comedy and drama,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “We’re very excited to work with him again and can’t wait to see what he brings to the fascinating character of Dr. Geoffrey Pierce.”
“Perception” centers on Dr. Geoffrey Pierce, an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve complex cases. With an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the mind, this quirky, crime-solving professor pulls lessons from an odd and imaginative view of the world.
