At its upfronts this morning TNT announced that it is launching a major brand overhaul, focusing on a younger audience and, as you can see below, more action-packed series. Check out the full trailers below.
Public Morals – 1960s cop drama that centers on the Public Morals Division. It’s there that cops walk the line between morality and criminality as the temptations that come from dealing with all kinds of vice can get the best of them. It centers on cop Terry Muldoon (Ed Burns), who knows the line between the good guys and the bad guys is thin but is determined to raise his sons to be honest and hardworking.
Proof. A supernatural drama starring Jennifer Beals and produced by Kyra Sedgwick. The procedural centers on a skeptical, hard-science female surgeon (Jennifer Beals) who after experiencing tragedy in her family, sets out to explore whether there is anything after death. She investigates cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences and hauntings in a quest to find verifiable proof to answer one of life’s biggest questions: Is death the end or is there something beyond?
Librarians. The three TV movies starring Noah Wyle have now been turned into a series, with Rebecca Romjin and Leverage‘s Christian Kane co-starring. “The Librarians centers on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artifacts from around the world.” The TV movies were cheesefests, but this looks like a well-cast, fairly fun cheesefest.
Legends – starring Sean Bean. Does that mean he finally gets to live onscreen?
The Last Ship. Post-apocalyptic drama based on a novel of the same name by William Brinkley. Only 10 episodes have been ordered, and given how overblown it looks, it probably won’t last beyond the 10.
Murder in the First. A single murder case is dissected from the commitment of the crime through the investigation, arrest and trial. Stars Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson.
