LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Nip/Tuck" stars Dylan Walsh and Joely Richardson will headline two broadcast drama pilots: CBS' "ATF" and ABC's "The Whole Truth," respectively.

"ATF" centers on an ATF agent (Walsh) who hunts down the most dangerous criminals while trying to find a balance as the father to the teenage daughter who has re-entered his life.

Hot off his seven-year turn on FX's "Nip/Tuck," on which Richardson played his wife, Walsh fielded multiple offers this pilot season. He next co-stars in the feature "Secretariat."

"Truth" is a legal drama that shows the defense and prosecution sides equally. It centers on Kathryn Pearle (Richardson), a successful New York prosecutor. To accommodate Richardson, production on "Truth," originally planned for Los Angeles, is expected to be moved to New York if the show goes to series.
