Amazon’s Prime Video has officially ordered a ten-episode “Bosch” spin-off about the LAPD’s cold case division and Det. Renee Ballard.

Ballard is a key character in Michael Connelly’s novels that hasn’t made the jump to the screen as yet. The series sees Ballard is tasked with running the LAPD’s new cold case division – a poorly funded, all-volunteer unit with the largest case load in the city.

Ballard approaches these frozen-in-time cases with empathy and determination. When she uncovers a larger conspiracy during her investigations, she’ll lean on the assistance of her retired ally, Harry Bosch, to navigate the dangers that threaten both her unit and her life.

The spin-off was first reported on back in February alongside another in development focused on Jamie Hector’s Jerry Edgar character. That project remains in development.

Connelly says in a statement that:

“It is so exciting to bring Renée Ballard to the screen and to do it with Prime Video, my streaming partners for going on 10 years. This show will have the same authenticity and propulsive momentum of ‘Bosch: Legacy’. Fans of the books will love it.”

The new series will be executive produced by Connelly, Michael Alaimo, and Kendall Sherwood. Alaimo and Sherwood will also serve as showrunners.

The second season of “Bosch: Legacy” premiered last month on Amazon Freevee.
