Steven Bochco is back.
Best known as the creative force behind NYPD Blue, LA Law, and Hill Street Blues (I like those) as well as Doogie Howser, M.D. (which I did not really watch) and other, sometimes experimental, television series, Bochco’s latest show premiered on TNT last night.
Similarly to the 1995-97 series Murder One (some critical success but it didn’t catch on), Murder in the First follows a single case over ten episodes starting with detectives played by Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson launching a murder investigation.
I like it enough to keep watching for now. It’s nice to have a new show that is interesting enough to follow and see if it takes off.
Harry Potter fans may enjoy seeing Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) as a tech start-up wunderkind. He’s mean, but is he a murderer?
Time will tell…
