Donal Logue to star in FX P.I. pilot

Comedy from 'Shield' creator, 'Ocean's Eleven' writer

Donal Logue has been tapped to star in "Terriers," FX's comedic hourlong pilot from "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan and "Ocean's Eleven" writer Ted Griffin.

The project, from Fox21, centers on Hank (Logue), an ex-cop who partners with his best friend to launch a P.I. business where the duo, both with maturity issues, solve crimes while trying to avoid danger and responsibility.

Hank is an affable, talkative fellow who's not always the best liar but is adept at adopting different personas to find out information. He is alarmed by what he perceives as signs of his encroaching senility.

Griffin penned the script for "Terriers" and is executive producing with Ryan.

Logue, who most recently co-starred on NBC cop drama "Life" and in the 2008 Fox film "Max Payne," is repped by CAA, Kipperman Management and attorney Shep Rosenman.
