TNT orders more ‘Leverage’

TNT says it has added two episodes to the summer run of its hit U.S. series Leverage, starring Timothy Hutton.

The additional installments will air on Sept. 2 and Sept. 9, the network said.

Former Star Trek: Voyager actress Jeri Ryan is to begin a new recurring role as Tara, a grifter who helps the team out, in the Sept. 9 finale.

In the series, Hutton plays Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator determined to bring down the kind of corrupt bigwigs whose neglect led to the death of his son, TNT said in a news release.
