Deadline reports that York is writing the script for In Deep, which will be executive produced by Gary Randall.
The project, described as a combination of The Sopranos and Desperate Housewives, will follow a female FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate the Chicago mob, with the aid of the gangsters' wives.
York, real name Kathleen York, earned an Academy Award nomination for her similarly-titled song 'In The Deep' in 2006, which featured on the soundtrack to the movie Crash. She also played Andrea Wyatt on The West Wing from 2000 to 2006 and has also made recent guest appearances in episodes of CSI: Miami and Chase.
In Deep has received a script commitment from 20th Century Fox TV.
