Already missing "True Detective" and its weekly unraveling of a complicated murder investigation? Come June 9, TNT hopes to satisfy that crime-show craving with "Murder in the First," a new series from acclaimed producer Steven Bochco ("NYPD Blue," "L.A. Law," and "Hill Street Blues") that promises to bring you "one step closer to the truth" of a season-long case every week.
With the premiere still a few months away, Yahoo TV offers this exclusive first look at the extended trailer to tide you over.
The 10-episode season of "Murder" starts with two seemingly unconnected homicides in San Francisco and follows detectives Terry English (Taye Diggs, "Private Practice") and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson, "Boss") as they try to round up suspects and solve the case while battling their own hardships: English is struggling to care for his terminally ill wife, and Mulligan is a single mom.
The plot thickens when they realize the murders have hot-tempered Silicon Valley hotshot Erich Blunt (Tom Felton, "Harry Potter") in common. They are hindered at every turn by just the kind of cutthroat legal team (Richard Schiff of "The West Wing" and James Cromwell of "American Horror Story: Asylum") and loyal cronies (Steven Weber of "Dallas" and "Wings" and Bess Rous of "What Just Happened") one expects tech guru money and fame to buy.
Judging by his casual reaction to a blackmail email, his dismissal of an employee he was sleeping with after she spilled wine on him, the threats he tosses around nonchalantly throughout the clip, and his background in Slytherin, Felton's a likely suspect — but then again, the video warns that "nothing is what it seems."
"Murder in the First" premieres June 9 on TNT.
