Michelle Dockery and Ellen Barkin Will Star As Sexy Criminals on TNT

TNT has added two dramas to its 2016 slate: One is Good Behavior, starring Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery as ex–con artist Letty Dobesh. She’s out of prison, but not out of trouble! According to the logline, Dobesh’s life gets messy again when she tries to stop a hit man played by Juan Diego Botto in what becomes a “dangerously captivating relationship.” The second, Animal Kingdom, stars Ellen Barkin as the matriarch of a crime family with Felicity’s Scott Speedman as her right-hand man. The narrative centers on 17-year-old “J” Cody (played by Finn Cole), who moves in with this crazy family (the Codys) in a southern California beach town and gets mixed up in their funny business. It’s like opposite O.C.! The show also stars Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Daniella Alonso, and Molly Gordon. Production on both begins in early 2016, with a plan to release them later on that year.
