Southland Season 5 Will Hit DVD In August
Just a few weeks after Southland's Season 5 finale aired, TNT opted to cancel its on-the-street cop drama. Despite Season 5 being the last time we’ll get to see the cast in action, fans of the show will be able to relive their favorite moments from the final episodes when Southland: The Complete Fifth and Final Season hits DVD on August 13.
TNT And TBS Add Frank Darabont, Steven Spielberg, Diablo Cody And More Big Names To Lineup
There are some huge names to be found on the brand-new lineups for both TBS and TNT, two cable networks that haven't gotten quite the same high-toned acclaim as competitors like AMC and FX, but seem to be doing their damnedest to try. New shows on the fall lineup announced today include Portal House and Peter Gunn
TNT And TBS To Begin Streaming On-Air Content Live Online 24/7 This Summer
A lot of people watch TV online these days, but in most cases, they're doing so either through on demand subscription services like Hulu and Netflix, or straight from the network's websites and apps. Excluding online-exclusive content, the episodes they are streaming or have downloaded have already aired on TV. Viewers have to wait until they become available online to watch them on their computers and mobile devices. TNT and TBS are changing that by becoming the first network to stream on-air content live 24/7.
Monday Mornings Cancelled By TNT
Monday Mornings is having a bad Friday morning. Today, TNT announced the freshman drama will not be getting picked up for a second season, which is somewhat surprising when you consider the track record of Boston Legal and Harry’s Law creator David E. Kelley, who also put together the recent TNT drama. Then again, when considering the ratings Monday Mornings was bringing in, the cancellation is a little less of a surprise.
Southland Cancelled After Five Seasons
If the CBS pilot Reckless goes to series, they won't have to worry about replacing Shawn Hatosy. The actor took a role alongside Cam Gigandet in Dana Stevens' legal drama Reckless, but it was in second position to his commitments to TNT's Southland. But it looks like that won't be an issue now, as Southlandis not being renewed for another season. The cop drama's cancellation comes just weeks after the series aired the finale episode of its fifth season.
Perception Season 1 Will Hit DVD Later This Month
Despite Trust Me failing to work out for former Will & Grace star Eric McCormack on TNT a few years ago, the man opted to work with the network again on the drama Perception, and that bid has paid off. The series has already been picked up for a second season on TNT, which will premiere in June. If you are already a big fan of the series or want to give it a shot before new episodes air, Perception: The Complete First Season will hit DVD on May 21.
Sean Bean's Legends Gets A Series Order At TNT
You can kill Sean Bean's character, but you can't kill his spirit or his talent! With The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones among his credits, Sean Bean is no stranger to playing a starring role in an adaptation of a book, which may come in handy in taking on the lead character in Legends, the latest drama to get the greenlight from TNT. Then again, based on the trailer, it looks like this character is having a bit of an identity crisis. The series is executive produced by Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24), Alexander Cary (Homeland) and Jonathan LEvin (Charmed) and is based on a book by spy novelist Robert Littell.
Michael Bay's Action Drama The Last Ship Goes To Series At TNT
Though he's better known for his feature work, Michael Bay has been branching out into television lately. Starz's Black Sails is set to debut in January, and TNT's upcoming new drama The Last Ship just received a series order at the cable channel. Bay is attached to both projects. As the trailer reveals, the drama focuses on a global pandemic and the captain of a ship which plays host to a lab where a possible cure is being developed.

Dallas Renewed For Season 3
Dallas' second season ratings weren't quite what they were in its first season. The series logged 4.29 million viewers for its first season finale, and the second season finale fell just shy of three million viewers. But TNT appears to be pleased enough with the series' numbers to renew the show for a third season. The order matches the fifteen episodes delivered in Season 2.
Taye Diggs And Kathleen Robertson Team Up For TNT's Murder In The First
Steven Bochco's TNT drama pilot has secured itself a pair of talented actors, not to mention two familiar and very pretty faces for its leads. Kathleen Robertson and Taye Diggs have signed on to star in Murder in the First, a drama from the NYPD Blue co-creator, in the works at TNT. The cable network has done well for itself with shows featuring likable pairs, with Rizzoli & Isles and Franklin & Bash among their current original programming slate. Should things go well for Bochco's project, Diggs and Robertson may be the next great small scree pairing at the network.
Geena Davis To Star In Bounty Hunter Drama Pilot At TNT

Cold Justice Unscripted Crime Procedural Gets 8-Episode Order At TNT
TNT may know drama, but that doesn't mean the cable network is opposed to delving into unscripted television. After all, the genre's done plenty of other cable channels really well over the years. In the case of Cold Justice (WT), TNT's venture into the reality territory still manages to tie into drama, and sounds like it'll appeal to those who are already fans of their dramatic programming.
