Bosch spin-off about Renée Ballard gets series order at Prime Video.
The Renée Ballard themed Bosch spin-off moves from development to a 10-episode series order at Prime Video. Michael Alaimo (The Closer, The Man Who Fell To Earth) and Kendall Sherwood (Major Crimes, Your Honor) will serve as co-showrunners. The source material comes once again from New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. Connelly’s latest release, Resurrection Walk, includes the Ballard character following 4 prior novels focused on the character.
Prime Video describes the Untitled Renée Ballard series as following Detective Renée Ballard, who is tasked with running the LAPD’s new cold case division—a poorly funded, all-volunteer unit with the largest case load in the city. Ballard approaches these frozen-in-time cases with empathy and determination. When she uncovers a larger conspiracy during her investigations, she’ll lean on the assistance of her retired ally, Harry Bosch, to navigate the dangers that threaten both her unit and her life.
Author Michael Connelly shares his excitement for the series:
“It is so exciting to bring Renée Ballard to the screen and to do it with Prime Video, my streaming partners for going on 10 years. This show will have the same authenticity and propulsive momentum of Bosch: Legacy. Fans of the books will love it.”
The Untitled Renée Ballard series follows in the tradition of its predecessors in being produced by Fabel Entertainment.
Henrik Bastin, Executive Producer and CEO, Fabel Entertainment, shares his confidence in the series:
“Alaimo and Sherwood have done an incredible job bringing Renée to life, and creating a show that feels contemporary and fresh while honoring the Michael Connelly Universe. As the producers of Bosch and Bosch: Legacy, we are sure fans will love this new installment in the franchise.”
The series is executive produced by Michael Connelly, Michael Alaimo, and Kendall Sherwood. Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate will executive produce for Fabel Entertainment with Jasmine Russ as co-executive producer. Jamie Boscardin Martin and Trey Batchelor will also serve as co-executive producers. Theresa Snider will co-executive produce for Hieronymus Pictures.
