TNT picks up 'Truth in Advertising'


More pilot season coverage

TNT has picked up drama pilot "Truth in Advertising" to series. The cable network has ordered 13 episode of the project starring Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh and executive produced by "The Closer's" Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin.

Monica Potter, Griffin Dunne, Sarah Clarke, Mike Damus and Geoffrey Arend co-star in the series, which centers on two highly creative ad executives (McCormack, Cavanagh) whose professional partnership and friendship are put to the test when one is named creative director of their firm.

The Warner Horizon Television-produced "Truth" will premiere in 2009. Shephard and Robin are exec producing with Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny. "Truth" is the third of TNT's four 2007 drama pilots to be picked up to series, following the orders for "Raising the Bar" and "Leverage." The fourth, "The Family Man," is not going forward.
