Actor Hilary Swank has been roped in to headline an upcoming drama pilot from director Tom McCarthy.

Swank is all set to play the role of a star journalist, who moves to Alaska for a fresh start after a career-killing misstep. She soon finds redemption personally and professionally by joining a daily metro newspaper in Anchorage.

Swank will also serve as executive producer on the yet-untitled show along with McCarthy. Bert Salke of Co-lab21, Melissa Wells of Slow Pony banner, and Kyle Hopkins and Ryan Binkley of the Anchorage Daily News are also on board as executive producers.

The ABC drama is produced by 20th Television.

The pilot marks Stillwater director McCarthy's first broadcast network project. He has previously penned the pilot of The Loudest Voice, and executive produced and directed select episodes of Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.
