Get ready to see a lot more of Mark Harmon on TV.

NCIS' leading man will star in a USA TV movie based on John Sandford's best-selling book series Prey, the network announced Thursday.

Certain Prey will be adapted from the 10th novel in the 20-book series, which finds Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport (Harmon) chasing a hit woman while being the target of a killer himself.

Chris Gerolmo (Citizen X

) wrote the script. Michael Jaffe and Howard Braunstein of Jaffe-Braunstein Films (The Client List) will produce, with Harmon executive-producing. Production begins in May."Mark Harmon could read the phone book and we'd probably want to put it on the air!" Jeff Wachtel, USA's president of original programming, said in a statement. (USA also airs NCIS repeats.) "With Mark, Chris, Howard and Michael bringing to life the iconic character of Lucas Davenport — that really promises to be something special."

CBS renews NCIS for season 9

Though there are only plans for one adaptation now, should Certain Prey be a hit, it could morph into a TV movie franchise for Harmon, as USA has the rights to all 20 books. Will you watch Certain Prey?
