Raven Symone, Pierce Brosnan land TV gigs
Expect to see some very familiar faces on the small screen in the very near future.
Deadline.com reports that former "Remington Steele" star Pierce Brosnan, whose series ran from 1982 – 87, is planning to appear in a still-untitled investigative thriller about a private eye specializing in international crisis intervention. The ex-James Bond won't play the lead in the series, but is expected to take on a smaller role.
Disney darling Raven Symone will headline ABC Family's "The Great State of Georgia," starring as Georgia, a curvy girl from the South who heads to New York City to pursue her dream of being an actress. One problem: Her ex-boyfriend wants her to come back home. "Georgia" will be Symone's first TV series since "That's So Raven" ended in 2007, reports Deadline.
In other casting news, Angela Bassett, who appeared on the final season of "ER," has joined ABC's upcoming drama project "One Police Plaza." The series will star Bassett as New York City's first female commissioner.
