The project is based on Roush's blog of the same name with showrunner Brad Copeland, director Chris Koch and Underground Films' Trevor Engelson also serving as executive producers and Tony Hernandez as a co-executive producer.

The most recent Bosch novel, "The Black Box," was released last fall. (Deadline.com)
