As part of its presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, TNT has made several key series announcements with the big one being its naval action drama “The Last Ship” being renewed for a fourth season.
The Turner-owned network has also greenlit the limited-run discussion series “The Race Card” which famed athlete Charles Barkley will produce. Barkley plans to take on today’s hot-button topics by seeking out the sharpest and most varied viewpoints from cultural leaders and tastemakers. Six hour-long episodes are planned for an early 2017 launch.
Finally, they’re also doing “Monsters of God,” the Rod Lurie-produced post-Civil War drama which explores the savagery and violence of Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster’s holy war against the Comanche as he sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe. Lurie wrote the script and serves as executive producer and director on the pilot.
TNT also has the Bradley Whitford and Toby Jones-led drama “Civil” in the works, along with the nail salon drama “Claws”.
