TNT orders pilot for Blake Crouch’s GOOD BEHAVIOR
Hollywood continues to show Blake Crouch some love.
As Blake’s WAYWARD PINES comes to the end of it’s very successful season, TNT has it’s sights set on another Crouch character, Letty Dobesh, and has ordered a pilot. Letty. who appears in three novellas, is a lovely, charming thief/con artist whose lifestyle keeps her on her toes and one step from disaster.
The pilot appears to be based on THE PAIN OF OTHERS, the first Letty novella.
Letty Dobesh, a gorgeous, degenerate thief, is fresh out of the clink and back to her old tricks—in this case, burglarizing suites at a luxury hotel in Asheville, North Carolina.
But when she’s surprised by returning guests on her last room of the day, she’s forced to hide in the closet to avoid getting caught, and inadvertently overhears a hitman being contracted to murder the wife of a wealthy lawyer.
Letty is hardly a heroine, but this puts even her threadbare morality to the test.
Only in hindsight will she see her choice to intervene for what it is…a dramatic fork in the trajectory of her life, propelling her toward a terrifying shocker of an ending that neither she (or you) ever saw coming.
British Actress Michelle Dockery (DOWNTON ABBY) will play Letty. Michelle is best known as Lady Mary Crawley on DA, but she also appeared in two of the RED RIDING films, both based on the amazing novels of David Peace and can currently be seen in SELF/LESS.
GOOD BEHAVIOR has Blake reuniting with Christopher Hodge, his writing partner/executive producer for WAYWARD PINES. Hodge will handle both of those duties for GB.
Hodge will write and executive-produce the drama with Crouch, who also penned the book series on which Wayward Pines is based.
