Jesse L. Martin to STAR in TV Pilot.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18 (UPI) — Actor Jesse L. Martin has signed on to star in a musical drama pilot called “Hallelujah,” The Hollywood Reporter said.

The project is headed up by “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry for ABC. It is about a Tennessee town where the forces of good and evil are at war, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.

Martin is best known for his work on TV’s “Law & Order,” as well as in the movie musical “Rent.”

Fresh off his first day of rehearsals for Broadway’s The Motherf**ker with the Hat, the actor wasn’t expecting to lead his team to victory, but he did have a more reasonable goal in mind. “I’m hoping to walk away with the award for ‘Most Spirited’ again,” he said of the accolade he took home at last year’s event. “I have that up on my bookshelf, and I’m really proud of it.”


So who was going to walk away the night’s big winner? “I’m lookin’ at Anthony Mackie,” Second Stage alum Dylan Baker told “Come on, he was on the cover of Vanity Fair, now he’s going to come in here and destroy the place.”
