TNT is hot for Cold Justice. The network has ordered a 10-episode spin-off of the real-life crime drama, which will focus on sex-related crimes, rather than homicides.
The untitled spin-off will follow former Harris County, Texas, prosecutors Casey Garrett and Alicia O’Neill as they travel to small towns across the United States “to help local law enforcement close cases that have sat dormant for years.”
TNT is planning to launch the new series in Spring 2015.
