DESCRIPTION:
(from TNT's press release, March 2016) TNT will once again take viewers deep inside a complex murder investigation with the return of the powerful crime dramaMurder in the First. Created by Emmy(R) winner Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal,Murder in the First centers on a pair of San Francisco detectives - played by Taye Diggs (Private Practice) and Kathleen Robertson (Boss) - who investigate tough crimes that put the city on edge. In the first season, the show focused the murder of a woman who worked for the powerful head of a tech company, while season two centered on a brutally vicious shooting that threatened to rip the city apart. Homicide Inspectors Terry English and Hildy Mulligan are thrust into the tangled world of sports and celebrity when a pro-football player is murdered. As their investigation becomes increasingly more complex, the Inspectors are faced with their own, personal tribulations, compounding the cascading pressures of the case. Meanwhile, the prolific DA of SF has his pedal to the medal as he attempts to stay afloat after an unfortunate tragedy threatens his livelihood. Murder in the First launched as one of basic cable's Top 10 new series of 2014 and went on to reach more than 5.6 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms in its second season. The series is produced by TNT Originals, with Steven Bochco serving as executive producer.
