The untitled project from Richard Hatem (The Mothman Prophecies) follows a female detective (Sackhoff) who joins forces with a disgraced ex-cop to solve crimes and try to expose the conspiracy that forced him underground.

Producers of 24 won't say what, if anything, Sackhoff's pilot means for her storyline on the Fox series.
