TNT orders Ed Burns' 'Public Morals'
TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the '60s police drama "Public Morals" from Edward Burns.
Burns, who was last seen in TNT's short-lived "Mob City," write, directed and produced the "Public Morals" pilot, which is set up at Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television.
Michael Rapaport and Elizabeth Masucci co-star in the series, which is set in the NYPD's Public Morals division at some point in the '60s. The pilot features TNT favorites Timothy Hutton and Robert Knepper as guest stars.
"Edward Burns is one of my favorite filmmakers, and in Public Morals, he has created an incredibly authentic series, inspired by his own life growing up in a family of cops in 1960s New York," blurbs Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. "We've seen many stories about organized crime and corruption in the city, but this is a different way into that world as seen through the eyes of Irish-Americans, many of whom worked as police officers. We're also excited to have the inspired creative guidance of Steven Spielberg and our partners at Amblin Television on what is certain to be one of the most talked-about new series of 2015."
TNT has ordered 10 episodes to premiere in 2015.
