The studio behind USA Network’s "Burn Notice" is working with "Treme" producer Eric Overmyer and writer Michael Connelly on a TV series based on Connelly’s "Harry Bosch" novels, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fuse Entertainment, which is also behind AMC’s "The Killing," will work with its parent company SevenOne International on the project, the story notes.
"There is so much Bosch material available that I’ve felt for a long time that the best way to maintain the integrity of the character would be to take him to television, where some of the best character stuff is being done right now,” Connelly said in a statement. He added that he’s a fan of Fuse’s "The Killing."
Bosch is a homicide detective and Vietnam veteran who lives in the Hollywood Hills, while his half-brother is the L.A. defense attorney Mickey Haller, who was featured in the film "The Lincoln Lawyer." Connelly is also adapting "The Lincoln Lawyer" for ABC, the piece notes.
