New Crime Dramas in Development at TNT and TBS

TNT Logo

TNT announced today in a press release the cable network's development plans for new programming, which include some promising crime dramas.

Graysmith: Based on the life of cartoonist, writer and part-time private detective Robert Graysmith (author of Zodiac and many other books), this series will follow the renaissance man himself as he uses an unconventional approach and unusual skills to solve crimes.

Brain Trust: Delve into the world of an old-fashioned (and recently demoted) detective as he teams with four brilliant but socially awkward, sheltered academics to help him solve crimes.

Miss Philly: Explore the pristine suburbs and urban war zones of Philadelphia, where the mayor has hired the first African-American police commissioner. She finds herself handling more than she ever expected.

TNT's sister network, TBS, also has a crime drama in the works.

The Rabbit Factory: This series follows the detective team of Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs, two characters from the book series by Marshall Karp. Recently widowed Lomax and recently married Biggs work to protect and serve, navigating the daily challenges of their jobs while tackling their personal lives. (The Rabbit Factory is the title of the first book in the series.)
