US television network TNT presents a list of new programmes for its upcoming season.
Before premiering the new series in 2015, the cable network has unveiled the first footage from Public Morals, produced by Steven Spielberg. The official trailers have also been released for TNT’s other new shows, The Librarians and Proof.
Set in 1960s New York, the new police drama will follow a team of officers in the NYPD Public Morals Division. Public Morals is headlined by Ed Burns (Mob City), who plays an agent trying to stay on the straight and narrow in a job full of temptations, all while raising his young sons.
Also coming to TNT next year, Proof is a medical drama starring Jennifer Beals, who broke through in the 1980s in Flashdance and was seen more recently on The L Word. The actress will play Kathlyn Russo, a brilliant surgeon whose defining characteristic is her skepticism.

The series will be produced by Kyra Sedgwick, the former star of the TNT series The Closer. The pilot was helmed by Alex Graves, the director known for helming multiple episodes of The West Wing and more recently Game Of Thrones.
In a follow-up to the TV movies of the 2000s, Noah Wyle (Falling Skies) will reprise the role of Flynn Carsen in The Librarians, a new series slated to premiere this winter. While his job as a librarian may seem boring on the surface, the protagonist is actually responsible for safeguarding a special collection of powerful sacred objects. This mission leads Flynn on a series of wild adventures far beyond the library’s walls.
For his next adventures, Flynn Carsen will be assisted by four new recruits. The new “librarians” will include Eve Baird, a former counter terrorism agent, Jack Stone, an oil worker with an encyclopaedic knowledge of art history, Cassandra, a young woman with the gift of hallucinations linked to memory retrieval, and Ezekiel Jones, a tech expert and mystery novel buff.
To play Eve Baird, who is responsible for protecting the rest of the group, TNT has chosen Rebecca Romijn, the actress known for playing Mystique in the X-Men movies before the role was taken over by Jennifer Lawrence. Christian Kane (Leverage), Linda Booth (Kick-Ass 2) and John Kim (The Pacific) play the other members of the team. — AFP Relaxnews
