Bosch, based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling book series, focuses on a relentless LAPD homicide detective (Titus Welliver) who pursues the murder of a 13 year-old boy.  However, Bosch is also standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer.  Annie Wershing, Amy Price-Francis and Jamie Hector will also star.  Eric Overmyer (The Wire) is writing with Connelly.

“We are very excited to be working with creators like Michael Connelly and Chris Carter, both epic storytellers in their own right,” Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios says.  ‘For the first time we are bringing Amazon customers hour-long programming and we can’t wait to hear what they think of these new stories.”

The pilots will be available for free on Amazon Instant Video.
