FX greenlights Terriers from The Shield's Shawn Ryan

Shawn RyanThe Shield may have wrapped its run this past year, but that doesn't mean creator Shawn Ryan is done with FX. The network did let his vision run its course to completion, so I'm sure he's quite comfortable there. I know I am. This time, he's executive producing with Ocean's Eleven scribe Ted Griffin on the new dramedy Terriers, about a detective who teams up with a young hot-shot. FX has already greenlit Terriers, and Griffin has turned in the scripts so it's down to casting.

I miss the detective team of Chi McBride and Kristen Chenoweth on Pushing Daisies so I'm going to vote for them, even though it's not going to happen. It's just that when I hear dramedy about a detective with hot-shot sidekick(s), I can't help but think of Daisies. I think a lot of the success of this new FX show is going to come down to the casting. Eleven was very sharp and witty, though, so I'm confident Griffin can pull off the writing, but its going to need the right cast to bring it out. Make it as fun as Leverage and I'm there.
