Craig Johnson’s LONGMIRE appears to be a likely order for A&E

I heard something similar from somebody affiliated with A&E, but Deadline is reporting that LONGMIRE is a likely addition to A&E for 2012.

Based on the novels of Craig Johnson, LONGMIRE is about Wyonming  Sheriff Walt Longmire  and stars Robert Taylor (Longmire), Lou Diamond Phillips, Katee Sackhoff, Bailee Chase and Cassidy Freeman.

Apparently the powers that be at A&E liked the pilot and feel that it could be a solid addition to the network. THE GLADES, A&E’s current mystery series, has drawn mixed critical reviews but strong numbers.

I want to make note that the comments that were made to me DID NOT come from author Craig Johnson.
