O'Donnell Is TNT's 'Company' Man
Six-hour series is based on Robert Littell's book
Based on Robert Littell's history of the CIA through the Cold War, "The Company" will be produced by John Calley along with Ridley and Tony Scott through Sony Pictures Television.
The six-hour series is expected to premiere next summer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, O'Donnell will play Jack McCauliffe, a Yale grad recruited into the CIA in 1954.
A Golden Globe nominee in 1993 for his work in "Scent of a Woman" (and a three-time Razzie nominee), the "Batman & Robin" star has focused on television in recent years, beginning with a 2003 arc on "The Practice."
Last fall O'Donnell starred on FOX's instantly canceled legal dramedy "Head Cases," but transitioned over to ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," where his character, charismatic vet Finn Dandridge, was a love interest for Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) this past season.
