TNT has ordered 10 more episodes of a cop drama that recently wrapped up its freshman season, Entertainment Weekly reports. The second season will run in 2011.
The show is Jason Lee’s Elvis-oriented cop series "Memphis Beat," which ended its first season as one of the top new series of the summer on basic cable, the story says. “Memphis Beat” also stars Alfre Woodard.
In a statement, Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, said: “’Memphis Beat’ is a real treasure–a slightly off-center crime drama with great actors, memorable characters and a soundtrack steeped in Memphis sounds. We look forward to another fantastic season next year.”
