Guess what? The role of Vice-President is more than a mostly ceremonial position – it’s a role that is of vital importance to the security and well-being of America! TNT today announced that Sharon Stone has been signed to play Vice-President Natalie Maccabee in Agent X, a pilot with a terrific concept at its core. Maccabee ran for Vice-President in her late husband’s place and won. Initially fearing a mostly ceremonial role, she discovers that, along with her Chief Steward and a mysterious secret operative dubbed Agent X, she is expected to protect the Constitution in times of great crisis.

Agent X (a working title that I hope they decide to keep) is written by William Blake Herron (The Bourne Identity), which immediately gives it some cachet – and makes it of interest to everyone who loves a good espionage tale. For more, follow the jump to check out the press release.

Remember those three Transporter movies? Starring Jason Statham? The one about the guy who makes deliveries of specialized packages anonymously? The guy with the three rules: #1 – Never change the deal; #2 – No names, and #3 – Never open the package. Well, he’s coming to American television courtesy of TNT.

A while back, Cinemax entered a co-production partnership to make a Transporter series. Delays (showrunner change, star getting injured) caused them to back out of the deal, but the first season was finally finished and did well in Canada and overseas – well enough that a second season was commissioned and goes into production in February. Which is where TNT comes in. The network has picked up U.S. rights to Transporter: The Series, including the second season. The series, which stars Chris Vance (Rizzoli & Isles, Burn Notice) as Frank Martin is slated to premiere in the fall.

One of the enduring film noir characters is the hard-boiled detective. Frank Darabont’s three-week event series Mob City (TNT, Wednesdays, 10/9C) is centered on a hard-boiled detective who manages to be both a lone wolf and a cop. It’s an intriguing variation – and Mob City is an intriguing series if such things can be judged by the two-hour premiere, A Guy Walks into a Bar/Reason to Kill a Man.
