BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Pivot is getting into scripted drama with a new TV series starring former Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci.

The nearly year-old network focuses on viewers 18 to 34. It plans to launch “Fortitude” in January with 12 one-hour episodes.

Tucci plays a detective who arrives in a small Arctic town called Fortitude to search for a killer alongside the local sheriff played by Richard Dormer, who’s known for “Game of Thrones.” The series was filmed in Iceland and Britain.

The show marks Tucci’s first extended television role since he did a 10-episode arc on “ER” six years ago. He was nominated for a supporting actor Oscar in 2009 for “The Lovely Bones.”

The network announced the show Friday at the summer TV critics’ meeting.

Pivot also says it’s bringing back comedy “Please Like Me” for a third season.
