Last week, TNT greenlit Murder in the First, a new scripted drama from Steven Bochco, starring Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson, with Tom FeltonMimi KirklandRaphael SbargeIan Anthony DaleBess Rous and Steven Weber rounding out the cast.

TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the San Francisco-set detective drama, which is being produced by TNT Originals

Here's s synopsis:

Set in San Francisco, Murder in the First will follow a single case across an entire season. The drama centers on homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) as they investigate the murder of an apparent drug addict. The mystery deepens, however, when the victim is found to have a connection to Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Felton), the celebrated CEO of a cutting-edge tech firm. The timing couldn’t be worse for Blunt, who is preparing to take his company public. He's also being sued by a software developer who claims Blunt stole his code for a revolutionary new hologram system. Terry and Hildy's fellow detectives in their squad include philosopher-cop David Molk (Sbarge) The squad is supervised by Lt. Jim Koto (Dale). On the home front, Hildy is a single mom with an inquisitive daughter (Kirkland). Terry, meanwhile, is struggling to take care of his terminally ill wife, Emily, played by guest star Anne-Marie Johnson (JAGIn the Heat of the Night). Working for Blunt are Bill Wilkerson (Weber), his driver and pilot, and Ivana West (Rous), the company's chief technology officer.

Co-created by Bochco and Eric Lodal, who will also serve as executive producers, the series is slated to premiere on TNT in summer 2014.

Above is your first official look at the upcoming drama series, featuring its two leads - Robertson and Diggs.

Diggs lands this role months after ABC's Shonda Rhimes medical drama Private Practice, ended its run in January. 

Up next for Mr Diggs, look for him on the big screen in Baggage Claim and The Best Man Holiday, both out this fall.
