Good Behavior stars Dockery as a thief and con artist who takes on a mission to stop a hitman's assignment to kill a man's wife...just as she gets out of prison. The show comes from Wayward Pinescreator Chad Hodge and is based on Blake Crouch's Letty Dobesh novels.

TNT also gave the greenlight to a new crime family drama Animal Kingdom. Ellen Barkin stars as the matriarch of a SoCal family that indulges in the profits gained from criminal activities. Animal Kingdom also stars Felicity's Scott Speedman, Shawn Hatosy (Southland), Ben Robson (Vikings), Jake Weary (Pretty Little Liars), Finn Cole (Peaky Blinders), Daniella Alonso (Revolution) and Molly Gordon.

"Good Behavior and Animal Kingdom are muscular, distinct dramas that will define the new direction of TNT," Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming said in a statement. "We believe audiences will love watching Michelle Dockery trade in her manners for the life of a sexy, complex ex-con in Good Behavior and Ellen Barkin and Scott Speedman command an unruly family of criminals and adrenaline junkies in Animal Kingdom."
