Good Behavior TNT

Michelle Dockery's Good Behavior and Ellen Barkin's Animal Kingdom Get Series Orders at TNT

TNT will exhibit Good Behavior and visit an Animal Kingdom in 2016.

The basic cabler on Thursday greenlit the aforementioned dramas, which are headlined by Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) and Ellen Barkin (Sea of Love), respectively.

Adapted by former Wayward Pines showrunner Chad Hodge from the Letty Dobesh books by Blake Crouch, Good Behavior is described as a “seductive thriller” following Letty (played by Dockery), a thief and con artist who, fresh out of the clink, learns of and sets out to derail a hitman’s assignment to kill a man’s wife.

Juan Diego Botto (Ismael), Terry Kinney (Oz) and Lusia Strus (Wayward Pines) co-star.

Animal Kingdom stars BarkinAnimal Kingdom as the matriarch of a Southern California family that is prone to indulgence and excess, funded by criminal activities.  Scott Speedman (Felicity), Shawn Hatosy (Southland), Ben Robson (Vikings), Jake Weary (Pretty Little Liars), Finn Cole (Peaky Blinders), Daniella Alonso (Revolution) and Molly Gordon co-star.

Good Behavior and Animal Kingdom are muscular, distinct dramas that will define the new direction of TNT,” original programming EVP Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “We believe audiences will love watching Michelle Dockery trade in her manners for the life of a sexy, complex ex-con in Good Behavior and Ellen Barkin and Scott Speedman command an unruly family of criminals and adrenaline junkies in Animal Kingdom.”

    Although I’ve never been a big fan of TNT dramas in the past, I’d pretty much watch Ellen Barkin in anything she’s in. Definitely going to be giving Animal Kingdom a chance.

      TNT is trying to transition away from being the CBS of basic cable, and if you like serialized shows, Legends season 2 is pretty good so far (and you dont have to watch season 1 to follow it).

  9. Benjamin says:

    Is ANIMAL KINGDOM based on the Jacki Weaver movie?
