A&E Developing Two New Crime Dramas

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Deadline|Hollywood is reporting that A&E is developing two light crime dramas, projects that are currently in the cast-contingent pilot stage. Both are compared in style and tone to A&E's most recent success, last summer's The Glades (which has been renewed for a second season).

First is Big Mike, about a plus-sized San Diego police detective who's the best at what he does ... except in the romance department.

The second is Longmire, named for Walt Longmire, the sheriff of northern Wyoming's rural (and fictional) Absaroka County, and based on a character created by crime novelist Craig Johnson. (Although we haven't published it yet, we're including Johnson's most recent mystery in this series, Junkyard Dogs, on our list of the best crime novels of 2010.)
