Sounds like J. Edgar with the feds in Miami, Renee doing L.A. cold case work.

Oh fuck yeah! More Jamie Hector is always a good thing.

​​​​​​I assume that means we get an introduction to Ballard this season?

Also damn it Netflix of depriving us of a complete Bosch universe!

Re: Amazon orders Jerry Edgar and Renee Ballard spin-offs from Bosch creators

Here's the series descriptions from the article:

Here are details about the two new proposed Bosch spinoffs:

“Untitled J. Edgar” Show
  • Logline: A police drama following Harry Bosch’s former partner, Detective Jerry Edgar, who is tapped for an undercover FBI mission in Little Haiti, Miami. In this glamourous city, he is forced to balance his new life with the gritty underbelly of the city, while being chased by his mysterious past.
  • EPs: Michael Connelly, Larry Andries
  • The producing team on behalf of Fabel Entertainment will include executive producers Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate, and co-executive producer Jasmine Russ.
“Untitled Renee Ballard” Show
  • Logline: Detective Renee Ballard is tasked with running the LAPD’s new cold case division. Beyond simply investigating unsolved crimes, Renee is dedicated to bringing credibility to the department and justice to the community. Having learned from retired ally and mentor Harry Bosch, Renee does things her way – solving cases in unconventional ways while navigating the politics of being a woman on the rise in the LAPD.
  • EPs: Michael Connelly, Michael Alaimo, Kendall Sherwood
  • The producing team on behalf of Fabel Entertainment will include executive producers Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate, and co-executive producer Jasmine R

I'm sure Connelly and company are already looking at people for Ballard, but a casting probably won't get announced until Bosch Legacy season 2 premieres or around that time frame. I know season 2 is already in production.

Well sure. I was being facetious. Still sucks we can't get a combined universe.

Is Renee a book character? I'm drawing a blank on who she is from the show.

She is. But her character has not been seen on Bosch or cast yet.

This LAPD cop is the inspiration for the Renee Ballard character from the book.

I know it's just the audio book voice, but I wonder if they'll look at Christine Lakin for Ballard. I always liked her as an actress... but she isn't Polynesian.

Wonder if she would even have time. She does a ton of voice over work along with the audiobooks.

The two people pictured above are the showrunners


Connelly will executive produce the new series under his Hieronymus Pictures banner alongside Fabel Entertainment. Michael Alaimo (The Closer, The Man Who Fell To Earth) and Kendall Sherwood (Major Crimes, Your Honor) will both serve as showrunners. The drama series will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

Excellent. I would have to assume we will see the character introduced next season in Bosch
