Telemystery: CBS Developing Cop Drama, Murder Bitches

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

CBS is developing a crime drama project centered on two female cops titled Murder Bitches. (An editorial aside: Hard to see that name surviving very long …)

According to Deadline, the two women are complete opposites, their relationship complicated by the fact that one, aged 27, suffered a stroke two years ago. Their co-workers admire their success on the job while also giving them the titular nickname.

Ashley Gable and Tom Szentgyorgyi will pen the script and co-executive produce with Bruno Heller (The Mentalist).

Female partners in crime (solving), who have little in common outside the job, have been successful in the past — Cagney & Lacey and Rizzoli & Isles come immediately to mind — so there's no reason to believe this concept won't work. A new title is in order, however.
