True Crime Anthology Series ‘Major Crimes’ in the Works at eOne

Proposed Series to Focus on the Detectives and Criminals Behind the Cases

“Major Crimes,” a new true-crime anthology series from David Ayer based on the “most daring heists, robberies, and crimes in Los Angeles history” is in the works at Entertainment One. The title was previously used for the 2012-2018 TNT drama (which was spun-off from “The Closer.”)

Each season of this new “Major Crimes” will be focused on a single crime and take an in-depth look at both the detectives and criminals behind the case.

“Major Crimes” will be produced by Ayer and Chris Long’s Cedar Park and Tucker Tooley’s Tooley Entertainment — both of which have multi-year pacts at eOne — with Ayer, Long and Tooley executive producing. Chris Collins will write and serve as showrunner, with “Den of Thieves” filmmaker Christian Gudegast and Ayer each expected to direct several episodes.
