TNT has ordered a pilot for 'Delta Blues,' an off-beat police drama about an effective but unusual cop who lives with his mom and lives a second life as an Elvis impersonator.

George Clooney. It sounds like a match made in hunk heaven, but soon it may be coming to a much more accessible locale: your television. TNT has ordered a pilot for 'Delta Blues,' an off-beat police drama about an effective but unusual cop who lives with his mom and lives a second life as an Elvis impersonator.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, which is set in Presley's home town of Memphis, will be co-executive produced by Clooney and his collaborators at Smokehouse Pictures.

The pilot is a first for Smokehouse, though Clooney has previous television producing credits for the HBO shows 'K Street' and 'Unscripted'; in addition, production company Warner Horizon, which recently inked a deal to provide TNT with a pilot for Angie Harmon's crime drama 'Rizzoli', also has its fingers in the pie thanks to a previous partnership with Smokehouse.

Of course, no word has yet been released on who will be starring in 'Delta Blues,' but if Clooney wants to get out from behind the camera, chances are both the network and the viewers would welcome it. Because if there's one person in Hollywood who we're sure does a killer Elvis impersonation, it's George Clooney.
