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 the murder of an apparent drug addict. Tom Felton, Mimi Kirkland, Raphael Sbarge, Ian Anthony Dale, Bess Rous and Steven Weber also star in the project.
"Murder in the First sets up an engrossing, season-long mystery that's certain to appeal to TNT fans," said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and TCM. "We are thrilled to be working with Steven Bochco once again. We look forward to seeing this fascinating mystery unspool in the hands of Steven, Eric Lodal and the incredible cast and crew of Murder in the First."
The 10-episode drama will be executive-produced by Bochco and Lodal, who co-created the project.
