A little over a year ago filming started on Public Morals, a new TV-series produced by Amblin Television, ordered by TNT Broadcasting. And to show the world that when he produces a series he also means to get involved with the daily work on set, Spielberg himself visited (director and star) Edward Burns and his team on the streets of New York, to watch the dailies and give them some (additional) advice.
According to the official Press-Kit, Public Morals centers on New York City Police Department's Public Morals Division, where cops walk a thin line between morality and criminality as temptations that come from dealing with all kinds of vice can get the better of them.
The series focuses on Officer Terry Muldoon (portrayed by Edward Burns) and his team. Muldoon knows the line between the good and the bad guys is very thin, and he is determined to raise his own kids to be honest and hardworking as he deals with the dark underbelly of the vice department.
TNT ordered 9 episodes of the series last year, to be aired over the next couple of months (no starting date has been confirmed as of yet). Even last couple of months Burns and his team were seen around New York, filming the last scenes of this (great sounding, well to me at least) series.
Let's keep our fingers crossed as to the success this series deserves, after all, there must be room for more great TV-drama besides The Americans (Amblin's series that is so widely critically praised) right ?
