[via press release from TNT]

TNT ORDERS THREE SCRIPTED DRAMA PILOTS

TNT has ordered pilots for three scripted drama series: King and Maxwell, a new scripted drama based on bestselling author David Baldacci's popular private-investigator characters; Legends, a suspenseful, action-packed drama based on a novel by Robert Littell; and Trooper, a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama about a divorced mother of three working as a state trooper.

TNT now has four scripted pilots heading into production. In July, TNT ordered a pilot for the action-packed drama series The Last Ship, based on the popular novel by William Brinkley and executive-produced by Michael Bay.

The following are descriptions of TNT's three new pilots:

KING AND MAXWELL

King and Maxwell follows Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, who aren't the typical pair of private investigators. Both are former secret service agents, and their unique skill set (not to mention their razor-sharp chemistry) often gives them a leg up on suspects and conventional law enforcement.

King and Maxwell is adapted from characters created by bestselling author David Baldacci. The pilot is being produced for TNT by CBS Television Studios and Shane Brennan Productions, with Shane Brennan (NCIS, NCIS: LA) as executive producer and Karen Spiegel (Absolute Power) and Grant Anderson (Third Watch) as producers. Baldacci serves as a consultant on the project.

LEGENDS

Legends centers on a deep-cover operative named Martin Odum, who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn't who he thinks he is.

Legends is based on a book by master spy novelist Robert Littell. It comes to TNT from Fox 21, with Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24), Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor, The Day After Tomorrow), Alexander Cary (Homeland, Lie to Me) and Jonathan Levin (Charmed) serving as executive producers.

TROOPER

Trooper is a compelling procedural drama about a recently divorced female state trooper who is as unconventional at work as she is at home raising her three kids. Her partner on the job is a widowed father who has a much more by-the-book approach to policing.

Trooper comes to TNT from Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Horizon Television, with Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI series, Without a Trace, Cold Case) and Jonathan Littman (CSI series, Without a Trace, Cold Case) serving as executive producers. KristieAnne Reed (Dark Blue) is co-executive producer. The script is by Aron Eli Coleite (Heroes, The River).
