Mystery Bytes: Harry Bosch on TV

The LA Times reports that Michael Connelly has teamed up with Eric Overmyer and Fuse Entertainment to bring Harry Bosch to the small screen.

Eric Overmeyer was a writer for "Homicide: Life on the Street," "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Treme" and "The Wire."

Fuse Entertainment is the company responsible for "The Killing" on AMC, "The Good Guys" and USA's "Burn Notice."

In a statement, Connelly said, "There is so much Bosch material available that I've felt for a long time that the best way to maintain the integrity of the character would be to take him to television where some of the best character stuff is being done right now. I love 'The Killing' and I think teaming with Fuse and a writer of the quality and accomplishment of Eric is a fantastic combination."

The rights to the Bosch books were held by Paramount since the '90s, but Connelly bought back rights to the character earlier this year in order to pursue other opportunities.

This project sounds like it could be viable if one goes by the track record of the people involved.
