James Patterson's Women's Murder Club on TV
Reader favorite James Patterson, whose thriller Step on a Crack will appear in the January '08 volume of Select Editions, is proud of the Women's Murder Club television series, starring Angie Harmon of Law & Order, premiering this Friday, October 12, on ABC. If you remember from 2nd Chance, a Women's Murder Club mystery Select Editions featured a few years ago, the Club is an all-female group of experts—a medical examiner, a newspaper reporter, and a young assistant district attorney, led by a San Francisco police detective. Says Patterson, "I think it's going to be some pretty good TV. I'm at the very least thinking this may be a fun experience based just on the fact this will be the first time a living, breathing #1-bestselling book series will have a show on TV at the same time the books are still being written. I'm happy to be a part of it and can't wait to see how the characters come to life on the little screen and the page at the same time."
ABC is working hard to promote this new series, with the network running website previews and interviews with the director and actresses from the show. The show's promotion campaign is billing this as a cross between Sex and the City and CSI, with a little Law & Order thrown in, so if that sounds like your cup of tea, check it out this Friday.
