More Mystery Movie Night

TNT kicked off a series of movies based on popular novels last night with an adaptation of Scott Turow’s Innocent (full line-up, with tie-ins, here).

The cable channel just announced that the series will continue in the spring, beginning with an adaptation of Patricia Cornwell’s Hornet’s Nest, (Penguin/Putnam, 1996), the first in the three-book Andy Brazil novels. In this title, two detectives, played by Virginia Madsen and and Sherry Stringfield (ER), investigate a serial killer and are joined by young reporter Brazil, played by Robbie Amell.

It began filming in Wilmington, NC this week.

The other two books Andy Brazil books are Southern Cross (Penguin/Putnam, 1999) and Isle of Dogs (Penguin/Putnam, 2001). They were not as well-received as Cornwell’s series featuring the forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta (the latest in that series, Red Mist, is coming next week).
