Colm Meaney is in final talks to co-star opposite Jason O’Mara in “Life on Mars,” David E. Kelley’s drama pilot for ABC.

Based on the BBC series, the show centers on Sam (O’Mara), a detective who finds himself transported back to 1972 after his girlfriend is kidnapped.

Meaney will play Detective Hunt, the gruff, funny head of the homicide unit in 1972 who clashes violently with Sam.

Lenny Clarke also was cast in the pilot, from 20th Century Fox TV, David E. Kelley Productions and Kudos Film & Television.
