Courtney B. Vance and Mary-Louise Parker have been tapped to star in FX’s half-hour comedy pilot “Compliance.”

The show, which comes from writer Sarah Burgess and executive producer Scott Rudin, centers on a private-equity manager (Vance) and his government-appointed compliance monitor (Parker).

The project marks Vance’s return to FX after his 2016 Emmy win for the role of Johnnie Cochran in “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” He is also set to star and produce in the crime drama “Heist 88,” which is currently in development at the cable network.

Burgess will executive produce “Compliance” alongside Rudin, Garret Basch and Eli Bush, with Sam Gold producing and directing. FX Productions and Scott Rudin Productions will produce.

Since “Weeds” wrapped in 2012, Parker has been keeping busy with the series “Billions,” “Mr. Mercedes,” and “When We Rise.” If “Compliance” is picked up to series, it would be her first regular TV gig since the quirky drug-centric Showtime drama.
