TNT has ordered a second season of odd couple thriller series Good Behavior.
Based on the Letty Dobesh stories by Blake Crouch (Wandering Pines), the series follows addict/grifter/thief Letty Raines (Michelle Dockery) as she tries to battle her demons – addiction to booze, drugs and stealing – through her developing relationships with her son (Nyles Steele), an assassin (Juan Diego Botto) with a peculiarly moral side, and her estranged mother (Lusia Strus).
TNT’s new crime series, Good Behavior (Tuesdays, 9/8C), is based on Blake Crouch’s (Wayward Pines) Letty Dobesh stories – the misadventures of an ex-con addict who winds up working with an international assassin.
While on assignment to find two fellow Secret Service agents who have gone missing, Special Agent Ethan Burke wakes up in a forest of pine trees. He stumbles into the lovely town of Wayward Pines shortly thereafter. Then things go terribly awry.
From the Lost-ian opening shot to the Twin Peaks-like mountain town to echoes of The Prisoner’s prison, The Village, Wayward Pines has fun playing off expectations in unexpected ways – wearing its influences on its sleeve – but only on its sleeve.
