TNT Orders Crime-Spree Drama Pilot From ‘Justified’ Producers

TNT has given a pilot order to “Robbers,” a project based on author Christopher Cook’s 2000 debut novel of the same name.

The drama, which hails from exec producers Michael Dinner and Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly’s Timberman/Beverly in association with Sony Pictures TV, focuses on a crime spree across Texas. With twists and turns of interwoven storylines of both the guilty and innocent, “Robbers” focuses on two ex-con “running buddies,” a girl who complicates matters and the cop who is after all of them.

Cook is writing the project with Dinner, with the latter also signed on to direct. Cook also serves as co-executive producer on the project.

Tim McGraw had originally signed on to exec produce and star in “Robbers” in what would be his first recurring TV role, but the country star/actor has vacated the project.

The project is another example of TNT’s move away from female-centric procedurals to grittier fare, as just yesterday it cancelled the Jennifer Beals drama “Proof.” Pilots in the works include a TV adaptation of the film “Animal Kingdom” that stars Ellen Barkin and Scott Speedman and the Jerry Bruckheimer thriller “Home,” which TNT president Kevin Reilly brought over from his days at Fox.
