SevenOne International partners up with Fuse to package International Co-Production based on Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch Franchise

Munich, July 10, 2012. SevenOne International and Fuse Entertainment team up with Michael Connelly and writer-producer Eric Overmyer to develop a television series featuring Connelly's bestselling character, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch. One of the few remaining iconic properties available in Hollywood right now, the "Harry Bosch" franchise has an enormous international fan base. Peabody award-winning Eric Overmyer ("Treme", "The Wire", "Homicide, life on the streets") will be the project's showrunner and determine the order of adaptation from the Bosch series of books which span twenty years with the LAPD homicide detective. The number one New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly has sold more than 55 million books around the world, with the Bosch stories accounting for most of them. He is also the author of the bestselling series of "Lincoln Lawyer" novels, the first of which was successfully adapted to film last year with "The Lincoln Lawyer", starring Matthew McConaughey. Overmyer, Connelly and Henrik Bastin, CEO of Fuse, will be executive producers of the show. "There is so much Bosch material available that I've felt for a long time that the best way to maintain the integrity of the character would be to take him to television where some of the best character stuff is being done right now. I love "The Killing" and I think teaming with Fuse and a writer of the quality and accomplishment of Eric is a fantastic combination," says author Michael Connelly. "I've been a Bosch fan and a Michael Connelly fan from the beginning. Over the years I've read everything Michael's ever written. Harry Bosch is one of the iconic characters of American crime fiction. Cable television is the right venue for Michael's great series, and the opportunity to adapt it for the screen with Henrik and FUSE is thrilling. We have the chance to create something great," says Overmyer. Contact: Stefanie Prinz
