FX Networks Renews Justified and NBC Picks Up Undercovers

Mysteries on TV

Two news items appeared today in The Hollywood Reporter of interest to viewers of crime and suspense dramas.

First, FX has renewed Justified for a second season of 13 episodes. Justified stars Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens, a character created by crime novelist Elmore Leonard. "This pickup speaks volumes to the quality and collaboration on the series, and our unparalleled partnership with FX," said Jamie Erlicht, president of programming for Sony Pictures Television. "The viewer response to Justified has been as enthusiastic as ours was when we first heard the pitch."

Second, NBC has jumped the gun by pre-announcing its first new series for the Fall 2010 season, Undercovers, co-written, produced and directed by J. J. Abrams. "We have tremendous confidence in this promising series and feel this is a great way to kick off our upcoming upfront development announcements," said Jeff Gaspin, Chairman, NBC Universal Television Entertainment. "J. J. has delivered another signature series along with our partners at Warner Bros and we couldn't be happier." The pilot for the series stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Boris Kodjoe as a married couple who are re-activated as CIA agents after years of retirement.
