Deadline – TNT has greenlit Murder in the First, a new scripted drama from Emmy®-winner Steven Bochco and starring Taye Diggs (Private Practice) and Kathleen Robertson (Boss). Co-created by Bochco and Eric Lodal (The Locrian Mode), Murder in the First also stars Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Mimi Kirkland (Safe Haven), Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon a Time), Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-0), Bess Rous (What Just Happened) and Steven Weber (Dallas, Wings).
TNT has ordered 10 episodes of Murder in the First, which is being produced by TNT Originals. Bochco serves as executive producer, with Lodal as co-executive producer. The series is slated to premiere on TNT in summer 2014. TBS International will handle distribution to regions outside the United States and Canada.
Set in San Francisco, Murder in the First will follow a single case across an entire season. The drama centers on homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) as they investigate the murder of an apparent drug addict. The mystery deepens, however, when the victim is found to have a connection to Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Felton), the celebrated CEO of a cutting-edge tech firm. The timing couldn’t be worse for Blunt, who is preparing to take his company public. He’s also being sued by a software developer who claims Blunt stole his code for a revolutionary new hologram system.
DirectTV released another behind the scenes video and a full trailer of Tom’s upcoming tv series, Full Circle. Watch the videos below.
Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and the all-star cast of Amma Asante‘s drama praise the director for attention to detail in their movie.
“I would say she is a genius. She is so direct in what she wanted and I don’t think there is any fat on the movie whatsoever,” says Sam Reid.
