TNT Tweaks Summer Schedule, Moves ‘Legends’ to the Fall

TNT has made a slight change to its summer schedule, with newcomer “Public Morals” changing days and starting a week later and sophomore “Legends” pushed back to fall.

The network said Wednesday that the 1960s-set police drama “Public Morals,” from writer, director, executive producer and star Edward Burns and executive producer Steven Spielberg, will now premiere Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 10 p.m., a timeslot originally designated for the second-season debut of “Legends.” When TNT announced its summer lineup last month, “Public Morals” was set to bow Mondays at 9 p.m. starting Aug. 17.

Undercover drama “Legends” (pictured), starring Sean Bean and exec produced by Howard Gordon, will now air in the fall at a time and date to be announced. It will join a fall slate that includes the return of “The Librarians” and the premiere of action drama “Agent X.”
