Michael Connelly Developing TV Crime Drama based on Harry Bosch Mysteries

The Black Echo by Michael Connelly

Crime novelist Michael Connelly has teamed up with Eric Overmyer to bring his "Harry Bosch" mysteries to television. The proposed series will be produced by Fuse Entertainment, the same company behind The Killing and Burn Notice.

"There is so much Bosch material available that I've felt for a long time that the best way to maintain the integrity of the character would be to take him to television where some of the best character stuff is being done right now," said Connelly in a statement. "I love The Killing and I think teaming with Fuse and a writer of the quality and accomplishment of Eric is a fantastic combination."

Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch, a detective with the LAPD, was introduced in the 1992 mystery The Black Echo, which went on to win Connelly an Edgar Award for Best First Novel. Sixteen novels have followed with the 18th in the series, The Black Box, to be published this coming November.

Harry's half-brother, attorney Mickey Haller, was featured in the film adaptation of the first book in another series of crime novels by Connelly, The Lincoln Lawyer. A television series adaptation is currently in development at ABC.
