Ryan Hurst TNT PilotTNT is resurrecting Opie!

Fresh off his horrific Sons of Anarchy exit, Ryan Hurst has joined the cabler’s drama pilot King & Maxwell, our sister site Deadline reports.

Based on author David Baldacci’s popular Sean King and Michelle Maxwell book series, the project follows two secret service agents-turned-private eyes.

Hurst — whose beloved Sons character, Opie, was offed in brutal fashion at the start of the FX drama’s current fifth season — will play a high-functioning autistic savant serving a prison term for murder. The felon, who has the ability to see patterns and numerical sequences, forms a bond with King (played by the previously cast Jon Tenney) and helps make a major breakthrough in the P.I. team’s case.
