The Princess and the Frog and Dreamgirls actress Anika Noni Rose has signed on to star in the pilot for Beast Mode, a TNT boxing drama written and executive produced by David Schneiderman.

The potential series is loosely based on the life of trainer Ann Wolfe.

"Pulling herself and her two daughters up from poverty, abuse, homelessness, and criminality, Marsha Blackstone reached the pinnacle of boxing as a fighter and has become equally as successful a trainer known for unconventional methods and a fiercely combative style," a synopsis said.

Rose will play Marsha.

Filmmaker Tina Mabry is on-board to direct the project. Her credits include Pose, Power, Proven Innocent, Queen of the South and Dear White People.
