SBS will debut new U.S. crime drama, Bosch, in July.
Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling books, this stars Titus Welliver (Sons of Anarchy, The Good Wife) as Hieronymus ‘Harry’ Bosch, a relentless LA detective who will stop at nothing to bring justice to victims.
It also stars Jamie Hector (The Wire, Heroes), Lance Reddick (Fringe, The Wire) and Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead) and was executive produced by Eric Overmyer (The Wire) and Henrik Bastin (Burn Notice) and directed by Jim McKay (The Wire, Boss, Rectify).
The Amazon series was renewed one month after their biggest ever debut weekend in February.
In this first season, Detective Bosch chases a homicide case after a dog brings home a human bone from the Hollywood Hills. Bosch’s investigation takes on a life and death urgency when a killer, who confessed to the mysterious Hills’ murder, escapes custody and begins a murderous rampage across Los Angeles. Bosch and the killer become entangled in a cat and mouse game, with the killer taunting Bosch as the investigation starts to turn personal. The case unearths Bosch’s buried past as well as his relationship with his ex-wife and 14-year-old daughter.
The 10-part first season takes viewers through back streets and neighbourhoods of Los Angeles rarely seen on-screen and draws on plotlines from three Bosch novels: ‘Concrete Blonde’, ‘Echo Park’ and ‘City Of Bones.’
Wednesday, 29 July at 9.30pm on SBS ONE.
