UK movie-skewing network TCM has been building its shortform drama library with titles such as Deadwood, Rome, Band of Brothers and Hell on Wheels.
Now the Turner Broadcasting System-owned channel has added US drama Longmire to its schedule following a deal with Warner Bros International Television Distribution.
Created by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin and based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire (10×60′) debuted on US cable channel A&E in June 2012 and has been renewed for a second season to air later this year.
The story follows the widowed sheriff of a Wyoming county seeking re-election against an ambitious young deputy while trying to rebuild his personal and professional life.
Longmire is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Baldwin and Coveny executive produce with Greer Shephard and Michael M Robin.
The series will debut on TCM in March.
