Bosch Spin-off Series Announced by Prime Video
A new Bosch spin-off series has been announced by Prime Video, which will follow Detective Renée Ballard who is tasked with running the LAPD’s new cold case division. The story, as described in an official Prime Video press release, will see Ballard run “a poorly funded, all-volunteer unit with the largest caseload in the city.” The currently untitled is based on the character by author Michael Connelly, who will produce the show alongside Fabel Entertainment.
“Ballard approaches these frozen-in-time cases with empathy and determination,” reads the official description. “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.”
“From books to screen, Michael Connelly creates authentic and suspenseful stories, led by distinctive characters who make audiences care and connect,” shared Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD originals, unscripted, and targeted programming at Amazon MGM Studios.
“Renée Ballard is one of those characters. She instantly captivated readers with hints of a troubled past and a protective layer of idiosyncrasies she developed to survive. We look forward to expanding the Bosch universe with Michael and introducing viewers to Ballard’s personal approach to pursuing justice,” continued Anderson.
“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,” added Michael Connelly.
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.
