Telemystery: ABC Developing New Crime Drama, The Defectives

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

ABC is developing The Defectives, a project from Manny Coto (Dexter) centered on "a female internal affairs investigator, who is tasked with rebuilding the LAPD's special detective unit after she spearheads the probe into a corruption scandal that ultimately brings the department to its knees." She assembles a team of misfit cops, each of whom brings to the table a unique set of talents.

This logline sounds to us to be very similar to the premise of New Tricks, the UK crime drama that features a strong female character, who leads a team of retired male cops in solving cold cases. New Tricks is incredibly popular in the UK — we were sort of lukewarm on the season we saw — so there is clearly potential here.
