Davis will also executive-produce, as will Prendergrast and others.

Inspired by the life story of San Francisco bounty hunter Mackenzie Green, the project will star Davis as "an unconventional bail bondswoman and bounty hunter whose eccentric personality and unusual tactics give her an advantage in a tough and unpredictable business."

Electric Entertainment, Ternion Productions and 3 Arts are producing the project.
