Written by Masters Of Sex creator Michelle Ashford, the potential show is described as a serialized character drama set in a wild and unpredictable world. It is inspired by Billy Corben’s 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys, which chronicled the rise of the cocaine trade and the resulting crime epidemic that swept Miami in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Nice! Especially being on cable it will get to be what it wants to be. Wish tnt/fx/usa would have had Gang Related instead of network FOX.

    Bruckheimer and Bay were the dynamic duo behind such great blockbuster movies like Bad Boys 1 & 2, The Rock, Armageddon and Pearl Harbor. Don’t know if their upcoming pilot on TNT is going to be a “hit” or a “miss”.

    What about a Dallas season 4? Any news on renewal? And can they not break up the season like this,the season should be 20 episodes.

    So Breaking Bad is going into the cocaine business and moving to another channel? How about a new idea.

  5. Boiler says:

    Please no I have liked some TNT dramas. Lets keep them around like Perception, R&I, Franklin and Bash, etc.
