David Ayer, Chris Long, Tucker Tooley and Entertainment One are teaming to produce the original anthology series “Major Crimes,” not to be confused with the popular “The Closer” spin-off of the same name.
The series will follow the most daring heists, robberies, and crimes in Los Angeles history. “Den of Thieves” helmer and “London Has Fallen” writer Christian Gudegast is attached to direct several episodes, and Ayer (“Suicide Squad,” “Street Kings”) is also expected to direct several episodes.
Each season of Major Crimes will be built around a single crime and take an in-depth look at both the detectives and criminals behind the case. Chris Collins (“The Wire,” “The Sopranos”) will pen the project and serve as showrunner. Tooley, Ayer and Long will executive produce.
