Tom Cavanagh has landed the title role in the highly regarded ABC pilot Edgar Floats, sources confirm to me exclusively.
The character-driven procedural, from Life creator Rand Ravich, finds the former Ed star playing a police psychologist who moonlights as a bounty hunter. “Edgar understands everyone but himself,” explains Ravich. “Because of a personal financial crisis, Edgar is forced to leave the safety of his office and enter the dangerous world of fugitive recovery.”
The cast also includes Robert Patrick and Alicia Witt.
