Commenting on greenlighting the dramatic series, President and Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies Michael Wright stated: “Murder in the First sets up an engrossing, season-long mystery that’s certain to appeal to TNT fans. We are thrilled to be working with Steven Bochco once again. We look forward to seeing this fascinating mystery unspool in the hands of Steven, Eric Lodal and the incredible cast and crew of Murder in the First.”
 
The Plot:
 
Set in San Francisco, Murder in the First will follow a single case across an entire season. The drama centers on homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) as they investigate the murder of an apparent drug addict. The mystery deepens, however, when the victim is found to have a connection to Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Felton), the celebrated CEO of a cutting-edge tech firm. The timing couldn’t be worse for Blunt, who is preparing to take his company public. He’s also being sued by a software developer who claims Blunt stole his code for a revolutionary new hologram system.
 
Terry and Hildy’s fellow detectives in their squad include philosopher-cop David Molk (Sbarge) The squad is supervised by Lt. Jim Koto (Dale). On the home front, Hildy is a single mom with an inquisitive daughter (Kirkland). Terry, meanwhile, is struggling to take care of his terminally ill wife, Emily, played by guest star Anne-Marie Johnson. Working for Blunt are Bill Wilkerson (Weber), his driver and pilot, and Ivana West (Rous), the company’s chief technology officer.
