Los Angeles: Sarah Jessica Parker is all set to star in a lead role of a police crime thriller based on non-fiction book `Busted: A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love`.

The book chronicles reporters Ruderman and Laker`s efforts to uncover one of the biggest police corruption scandals in Philadelphia`s history.

Don Roos will write the pilot, while David Frankel is set to direct and executive produce the pilot, reportedly.

"Wendy and Barbara have written an amazing true story, and we`re thrilled for it to be SKE`s first television project," Frankel and Jim Tauber, president of Sidney Kimmel Entertainment which has obtained the rights to the book, said in a statement.

"Sarah Jessica`s coming on board, along with David Frankel and Don Roos is simply a perfect combination that we couldn`t be happier about," they added.

After `Sex and the City` ended its run in 2004, Parker went on starring in a number of films, including the two movie adaptations of a hit series.

She also recurred in season 4 of `Glee` as Isabelle Wright
