TNT Greenlights Steven Bochco Drama

'Murder In The First' To Debut In Summer 2014

TNT has greenlit a new crime drama from Emmy Award-winner Steven Bochco, the network announced Thursday.

The network has ordered 10-episodes of Murder in the First, which stars Taye Diggs (Private Practice) and Kathleen Robertson (Boss) as crime detectives assigned to investigate the murder of an apparent drug addict. The victim’s connections to a Silicon Valley executive, played by Tom Felton (Harry Potter), leave more questions about the crime than answers.  

The series, co-created by Bochco (Hill Steet Blues, LA Law, NYPD Blue, Murder One) and Eric Lodal (The Locrian Mode), will premiere on TNT in summer 2014, according to network officials.
