TNT has 14 new shows in the works
It's always intriguing when a cable network has two or three original shows they're working on. But TNT has gone project crazy this year, with a whopping 14 shows in development.
It's an interesting mix of shows too. You have your dramas, including a mystery series set in Boston, based on the novels of Tess Gerritsen; a drama about a family in 1950s Indiana; an espionage drama titled Leverage; a drama from Robert Redford titled Generations, which focuses on several families who have lived in the same house over the decades; and Truth In Advertising, which sounds a lot like a modern-day Mad Men (not that I'm complaining) and stars Eric McCormack, Tom Cavanagh, and Monica Potter. Comedies include a show about a single, middle-aged woman, from Betty Thomas and Elaine Pope.
There's also a new version of Match Game in the works, for TNT's sister station TBS, which we've talked about before, and The Genie Chronicles, which sounds like I Dream Of Jeannie, only it's a bit more serious and has a female reporter finding the lamp (I'm assuming there's a male genie inside). There are also a few reality shows in development at the network, but I'd rather not type those words so you can click on the first link above and read about them.
