Here's a new one: Dick Wolf is bringing a new crime procedural series to television! To his credit, Wolf is at least diversifying into reality television this time out, as TNT has ordered eight episodes of his cold case reality series "Cold Justice."
The series will follow two top female investigators as they delve into unsolved murder cases. Kelly Siegler has been a Texas prosecutor for 21 years, having tried 68 murder cases successfully during that time. Joining her on the investigative team will be Yolanda McClary, a crime scene investigator whose 26 years with the Las Vegas Police Department has seen her assist over 7000 investigations. The two will comb through existing evidence on a new case each week, interviewing suspects and witnesses, and hopefully chasing down new leads in an effort to finally close the book on these long-standing cases.
The cable network and Wolf have had a long-standing relationship, as "Law & Order" syndication episodes have been a cornerstone of much of TNT's programming, providing solid ratings in support of its original series endeavors. "Cold Justice" is the latest in unscripted content for TNT, as it will join three others debuting this year: "Boston's Finest" from producer Donnie Wahlberg; "The Hero" from Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, and "72 Hours," a survivalist competition show set in the untamed wild.
