When "Mad About You" wraps with an hour-long episode that she will likely direct, Helen Hunt hopes to gravitate quickly to a big-screen detective role that could be parlayed into a feature film franchise -- like James Bond, reports Reuters. Robert B. Parker, author of "Spenser: For Hire," hatched the idea for a film series about a female private eye with Hunt's input. Hunt will play Sunny Randall, with the first film based on the just-completed novel "Count the Raindrops." Helen hopes to be filming in Boston next year.
