8 months after greenlighting "Murder in the First," a new scripted drama from Steven Bochco, starring Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson, TNT will premiere the series tonight, Monday, June 9 at 10/9c.

Tom Felton, Mimi Kirkland, Raphael Sbarge, Ian Anthony Dale, Bess Rous and Steven Weber round out the cast.

TNT 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 (JAG, In 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.

The new drama is co-created by Bochco and Eric Lodal, who will also serve as executive producers.

Diggs lands this new gig over a year after ABC's Shonda Rhimes medical drama "Private Practice," ended its run in January 2013. 

"Murder In The First" debuts tonight at 10/9c only on TNT. Will you be tuning in?

    I want to know if this show fails is Diggs going to blame black women again?

    I don't like inter-racial kissing and marriages, so I quit watching after that show.

    Hey man, don't ask things like that, just take your woman to see Best Man 3 on opening weekend and be quiet.

    Or at least just drop her off.
