TNT has given a pilot order to a period police drama written and directed by Ed Burns, who co-stars in the cabler’s upcoming “Mob City” drama series.

Set in 1967 New York, “Public Morals” revolves around a honest vice cop struggling to raise his sons. Burns will also star.

Burns is writing the script and will direct the pilot and exec produce with Amblin TV’s Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey and Aaron Lubin.

Burns will be on TNT’s air in December with the premiere of “Mob City,” another period crime drama, in which Burns plays mobster Bugsy Siegel.
