Eric McCormack, who is best known for his comedic turn on ‘Will & Grace,’ will star in and produce a new pilot for TNT in which he will play an eccentric neuroscientist.

In the pilot, which has the working title ‘Perception,’ McCormack plays Dr. Geoffrey Pierce, who uses his unique ‘outlook to help the federal government solve complex cases.’ Executive producers for the project are Kenneth Biller (‘Smallville’) and Mike Sussman (‘Star Trek: Voyager’).

The pilot marks the third project McCormack has done for TNT. He previously starred in the 2009 comedy-drama ‘Trust Me’ and co-produced the 2007 pilot ‘Imperfect Union.’
