TNT picks up 'Dark Blue' for Season 2

Net orders 10 eps of cop drama starring Dylan McDermott

TNT has picked up freshman drama "Dark Blue" for a second season.

The network has ordered 10 more episodes of the cop drama starring Dylan McDermott and executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

The Warner Horizon-produced "Dark Blue" joins another recently renewed freshman TNT series, the Jada Pinkett Smith-starring medical drama "Hawthorne."

Both have performed respectably but have not become out-of-the gate hits like "The Closer."

"Dark Blue," which will return next year, will be joined by another gritty cop drama, "Southland," which will make its debut on TNT in January, following a midseason run on NBC.

The news of "Dark Blue'"s renewal comes on the day TNT saw strong ratings for the premiere of its last new series this year, the Ray Romano starrer "Men of a Certain Age."
