Pilots: O'Mara on Philip Marlowe case

By Nellie Andreeva The Hollywood Reporter, Jan 31, 2007

Jason O'Mara is in final negotiations to play Philip Marlowe in ABC's drama pilot about the famous detective.

* "Marlowe," from Touchstone TV, is a procedural crime drama set in present-day Los Angeles that will star O'Mara as Raymond Chandler's noir private eye. He also is expected to serve as producer on the show, executive produced by Greg Pruss, Carol Wolper, Sean Bailey, Dan Platt and Phil Clymer.

The casting stems from O'Mara's rich talent holding deal with ABC and Touchstone TV.

O'Mara's series credits include ABC's "In Justice" and CBS' "The Agency." He is doing a multiepisode arc on ABC's freshman series "Men in Trees" and co-stars in the upcoming feature "Resident Evil: Extinction."

O'Mara is repped by ICM and attorney Jamie Mandelbaum.
