Last fall, Denis Leary's Tommy Gavin exorcised his inner demons in the final episode of "Rescue Me." But that doesn't mean that Leary is through with television or FX.

According to Deadline, Leary has already received a pilot order from FX for "Bronx Warrants," a new comedy series created by Dean Lorey ("Arrested Development"). Based upon the real experiences of Richard Wetzel and David Joglar, "Bronx Warrants" follows a group of police detectives in the Bronx who are assigned to arrest criminals with outstanding warrants on their heads.

Because the detectives are paid bonuses for every person that they manage to bring in, the detectives are primarily driven by their desire to make more money than anything else. Jim Serpico will serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Leary and Lorey. It's also unclear if Leary intends to star in "Bronx Warrants."

In addition to his seven seasons on "Rescue Me," Leary has also starred in "The Job" on ABC and appeared in numerous feature films including The Thomas Crown Affair, Suicide Kings, True Crime, the Ice Age animated films and the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man reboot.      

Leary is also the co-creator of a paramedic themed comedy called "Sirens;" which is reportedly close to landing a pilot deal at the USA network.
