Greenlit to Series

On a whim earlier this year I logged onto Amazon and bought The Shield on DVD. I'd never seen an episode of this show before. I'd heard good things but none of the TV spots I'd seen had sold me. So I put off watching it -- for years. Huge mistake.

Within six weeks of purchase I watched every episode of The Shield on DVD and loved it. That show was of course created by Shawn Ryan and aired on FX, a network known for a consistently high output in quality drama.

So naturally when I heard Shawn Ryan's prodco, Midd Kid Productions, had sold another pilot to FX I was excited that I'd be able to experience this show as it aired. That pilot was Terriers, starring Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James, and today FX greenlit it for a thirteen episode series order.

Here's Variety's description of the show:

Project is described as a comedic take on the private eye world, revolving around an ex-cop turned detective who teams up with a young hot-shot.
