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).
Over the course of its first season, so far, Good Behavior (TNT, Tuesdays, 9/8C) defied expectations – where it began by looking like it could be either a scam or hit of the week series, it has instead, turned out to be a character study into which scams and murders occasionally intrude.
It’s frustrating in an entertaining way – you never quite know where it’s going to go.
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.
TNT has released a seven-minute sizzle reel showcasing two new drama series: Good Behavior (above) – based on the Letty Dobesh novels of Blake Crouch (Wayward Pines), and Animal Kingdom – an American adaptation of an Australian film about a tightly knit family that flourishes as a result of their hard-nosed criminal activities.
TNT has greenlit two new series for 2016: an American adaptation of Australian crime family film Animal Kingdom (above) and Good Behavior, based the Letty Dobesh novels of Wayward Pines author Blake Crouch.
Animal Kingdom follows a 17-year old boy who moves in with some relatives after his mother dies – and discovers their indulgent lifestyle is fueled by crime. Ellen Barkin and Scott Speedman lead the cast.
Good Behavior follow thief/con artist Letty Dobesh, whose life is always one bad choice away from implosion. Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery is Letty Dobesh. For further details, follow the jump.
