Murder in the First

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…
