TV: TNT's 3 new pilots

TNT has been doing so well with its current scripted shows, "Saving Grace" and "The Closer" that it's greenlit three new pilots:

+ "Night and Day": a fast-paced, gritty drama about the life of an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. It's written by Joel Surnow and Todd Robinson, the men who won Emmy's for creating "24."

+ "Men of a Certain Age": it follows three best friends who realize as their approaching their mid-40s that they haven't exactly accomplished everything they set out to do in college. Ray Romano ("Everybody loves Raymond"), who's also the co-creator, will play a party-store-owning aspiring golfer; Andre Braugher ("The Andromeda Strain") will play a car salesman who works for his dad; and Scott Bakula ("Quantum Leap") will play a struggling actor.

+ "Truth in Advertising": Two best friends go head-to-head when one of them is promoted to creative director of their firm. It stars Eric McCormack ("Will & Grace") and Tom Cavanagh ("Ed") as the leads. Monica Potter ("Boston Legal" and Head over Heels) and Sarah Clarke ("24") are also in the cast.
