TNT has given the green light to Steven Bochco drama Murder in the First, the network announced Thursday.
Set in San Francisco, Murder follows a single case across an entire season, centering on Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) as they investigate...

Janet Tamaro has stepped down as showrunner of Rizzoli & Isles, Deadline reports.
Tamaro developed the series, based on Tess Gerritsen's novels in 2010, but has decided to cede her producing and showrunning responsibilities to focus on new projects. She will remain on the TNT drama as a consultant...
Yolanda McClary and Kelly Siegler
There's a new crime-fighting duo coming to prime time this fall, but the cases they're investigating have been dormant for years and sometimes even decades.
On TNT's Cold Justice (premiering Tuesday at 10/9c), the latest endeavor from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, prosecutor Kelly Siegler and crime scene investigator Yolanda McClary team up to reopen unsolved small-town cases that have gone "cold" despite the best efforts of local law enforcement.
Americans like their privacy.
Yes, here we go again with another episode of Major Crimes that was written and produced before a big news story took over the front pages and, once again, I remind our viewers that the show is not about politics. I don't know whether having informers and wires and cameras everywhere is a good or a bad idea, though I will express some pity for those tasked with analyzing American e-mails: after reading the first one hundred explanations of why spouses cheat on each other, I am pretty sure you have read them all. Even sex in the Twitterverse - lit up by pictures of politicians in various states of undress — begins to seem banal after so much...overexposure. Personally, I think a nonporous wall between our public and personal lives is a good idea, and that protections afforded our privacy by the Constitution are central to American liberty. But we live in a complicated age...
Doris Roberts and G.W. Bailey
My first order of business in previewing the next episode of Major Crimes is to thank Tim Conway, Paul Dooley, Ron Glass, Doris Roberts and Marion Ross for lifting this entry of our series onto the list of our most memorable. Our entire cast of regulars was thrilled to host these legends from, respectively, McHale's Navy and The Carol Burnett Show, Breaking Away and Grace Under Fire, Barney Miller and Firefly, Remington Steele and Everybody Loves Raymond, and Happy Days and Brooklyn Bridge. Also appearing, the dynamic Paul McCrane (of E.R. fame), as an ICE agent with a curious (one might even say horrifying) hobby.
Now to write just a few words about our story, which revolves around an all-too-familiar aspect of an individual's identity. To state the obvious (I am a television writer, after all!), people change...
Kearran Giovanni, G.W. Bailey
When we began breaking stories around the theme of identity this season, no one ever thought we would be plumbing such dark and disturbing places inside the collective unconscious. Yet our next episode of MAJOR CRIMES dives further into the bottomless waters of the human psyche than we have ever gone before, sinking quickly past the (relatively) more common sins of murder, racial prejudice ...
In the seventh episode of our summer long examination of identity, we actively consider that oldest of old saws, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." We are usually taught this elemental lesson in judgment when we're very young, and (for many) it begins the effort to hone the native suspicion of human nature. There are too many examples of how people have been led astray by appearances to repeat them here, but one should not have to go back very far in American history to locate tragic mistakes that occur when people form false impressions based entirely on semblance. But Major Crimes is only an hour drama on television, and not a civics lesson; many of the questions we ask have no answers...
Rizzoli & Isles
Maura's father, mob boss Paddy Doyle, will finally head to trial next week on Rizzoli & Isles, but it looks like he has a lot more to answer to than murder charges.
In this exclusive first look at Tuesday's episode (9/8c, TNT), Maura (Sasha Alexander), Jane (Angie Harmon) and Korsak (Bruce McGill) find ...
TNT's new series Cold Justice is the latest project from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf — only this time, the cases aren't ripped from the headlines. They're real.
Check out two exclusive sneak peeks from the series below:
