Brenneman eyes return to series TV

Amy Brenneman is looking to return to series television.

The Judging Amy star has inked a talent-holding deal with ABC and Touchstone TV to star in a project for the Disney-owned network and the studio targeted for next fall. The pact reunites Brenneman with ABC after her stint on NYPD Blue in the network's cop drama's first season.

Brenneman starred as Judge Amy Gray on the CBS drama Judging Amy, which ran from 1999-2005. She earned three consecutive Emmy nominations for her work on the show.

Onstage, Brenneman appeared in the Williamstown Theater Festival's staging of the John Belluso play A Nervous Smile this summer. She will appear opposite Al Pacino next year in the Jon Avnet drama 88 Minutes.

Headey dons superhero threads for CBS

Lena Headey will play a single, city-girl superhero in Barbara Hall's comic book-based drama pilot Ultra for CBS. The comic book features lead character Pearl Penalosa as a model who must juggle saving the world with her love life. The series takes a satirical look at modern life and parodies pop-culture.

Headey is currently onscreen in the feature Imagine Me & You, and appeared last year in The Brothers Grimm. The English-born actor's previous monster-fighting credits include The Cave.

Barbara Hall is the creator of the series Joan of Arcadia and developed Judging Amy.

Brenneman has time for 88 Minutes thriller

Amy Brenneman will reunite with her former Heat costar Al Pacino in the crime thriller 88 Minutes, which is shooting in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Pacino plays a college professor who moonlights as a forensic psychiatrist for the FBI and receives a death threat claiming he has only 88 minutes to live. Brenneman plays his longtime assistant who is immune to his man-about-town ways. Also starring are Leelee Sobieski, Neal McDonough, and Benjamin McKenzie.

Jon Avnet is directing, having previously worked with Brenneman in Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her, which he produced.

Brenneman, who earned three Emmy nominations during her six-year stint starring in CBS's Judging Amy, most recently was seen in Nine Lives opposite Glenn Close and Holly Hunter. In Michael Mann's 1995 thriller Heat, she played a bookstore clerk in cahoots with Robert De Niro's character.

Judging Amy is a drama starring Amy Brenneman as a single mother who has left New York behind to become a Family Court judge in Hartford, Connecticut. Judge Amy Gray is divorced and raising her young daughter, Lauren (Karle Warren.) They live with Amy's very opinionated mother Maxine (Tyne Daly), a social worker who is often at odds with her boss, Sean (Timothy Omundson.) Amy has re-established relationships with her younger brother Vincent (Dan Futterman,) her older brother Peter (Marcus Giamatti,) and his wife Gillian (Jessica Tuck). Assisting Amy in the courtroom are her Court Services officer, Bruce Van Exel (Richard T. Jones,) and her eager court clerk turned lawyer, Donna Kozlowski (Jillian Armenante). Judging Amy, based on the real-life story of Brenneman's mother, is about three generations of women living together as they confront the personal and professional dilemmas in their changing, challenging lives.
