In recent years, the transition from film to television (and back again) has become very common among movie stars. The latest to join the list of celebrities making the shift is Oscar-nominee and Emmy and Golden-Globe winner Sharon Stone, who has signed on to star in a TNT action-drama pilot tentatively titled "Agent X."

Stone will play Natalie Maccabee, the beautiful, strong-minded Vice President whose initial disdain towards her job is quickly withdrawn when she learns of the top secret mission she must take on with a secret operative known as "Agent X."

This is Stone's first lead role in a television series. Along with her extensive film credits ("Basic Instinct," "Casino"), her small screen appearances have included roles on "Will & Grace," "Roseanne" and "The Practice." 

The pilot is written by William Blake Herron ("The Bourne Identity") and executive produced by Armyan Bernstein ("Children of Men"). Beacon Pictures, which was founded by Bernstein, will produce the pilot.
