Harry Bosch TV Pilot Gets The Greenlight For A Full Season

Last Updated -

Remember where I’ve been talking about the new Harry Bosch pilot based on some of Michael Connelly’s books? Well, we’ve been all eagerly anticipating the release of a full season, although we were never sure whether it would happen. Everyone who watched the pilot for free on Amazon was urged to review it on the Amazon site and write a note whether we liked it as much as to want it to become a full fledged TV series.

Well, guess what: it happened: just yesterday it was announced by Amazon in a press release that Harry Bosch would be indeed released for further episodes, along with other popular new series such as: The After,  Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, Mozart in the Jungle,Transparent and Wishenpoof!

Based on customer reviews on the Harry Bosch pilot, the series was chosen because:

“Michael Connelly’s best-selling book series about a relentless LAPD homicide detective will also come to life in the Amazon Original series Bosch. Connelly and Eric Overmyer will co-write the series which features Titus Welliver, Annie Wersching andJamie Hector. Henrik Bastin and Fabrik Entertainment (The Killing) are producing.” (source)

Harry Bosch, the Los Angeles homicide detective, was featured over the years in 20 different novels in the series. The TV series features Titus Welliver, whom we all know especially from being the Man in Black in the popular series Lost.

Co-written by Michael Connelly and Eric Overmyer (who is best known for  a consulting producer and writer for the series The Wire) will be working together on the new show, which will include 9 additional episodes (10 with the pilot).

What I’m really happy about is that Michael Connelly will be closely involved in the production of the series, which almost guarantees that it will not stray far away from the books. The pilot was following the events in the books quite closely, so I am very hopeful about the rest of the series.

There is no official announcement on when the new Bosch series will air. What we know for sure is that the season will ber based on three popular Harry Bosch novels including “City of Bones,” “The Concrete Blonde,” and “Echo Park.”

    I’ve read all 21 of the Bosh/Haller series and can’t wait for series on Amazon prime. Connely is my favorite author.

    Hope we get to see these shows in the UK. Have read all Michael Connelly’s novels, my favourites being Angels Flight and The Lincoln Lawyer. I love Harry Bosch, both for his ethics and his personal appeal. I am glad that Michael Connelly is involved in the production of the Bosch series, as I didn’t think that the film of The Lincoln Lawyer did the novel justice, either in the casting or in the courtroom drama, and I wouldn’t want my hero to suffer the same fate.

    And yet Amazon won’t sell his books for Kindle.

    I never got to see the pilot of Harry Bosch, as far as I know it wasn’t on tv in England. Will the series be shown here or is to be American. I hope it comes here because Harry Bosch is among my favourite books

      I watched the pilot on Amazon.com, it was free to watch at the time. I assume it will come to the UK TV once the series properly starts.

    I love it when books turn into TV shows. A few of my favourites, Bones and Bitten were both originally books and now are tv shows. This is another great one!
