Michael Gaston is joining TNT’s “Murder in the First” as a series regular for season three, Variety has learned exclusively.

His casting marks a reunion with “Murder in the First” co-creator Steven Bochco, as they worked together on “Blind Justice,” which was Bochco’s short-lived “NYPD Blue” follow-up that ran one season on ABC in 2005.

In the upcoming season of “Murder in the First,” Gaston will play Fred Arkin, a warm family man who is a DUI defense attorney in a high-profile case.
