‘Murder in the First’
Nearly 20 years ago, producer Steven Bochco created “Murder One,” a fascinating crime series that followed one case over the course of a season. He has done it again with this smartly written, San Francisco-set series full of intriguing and watchable actors/characters. Kathleen Robertson and Taye Diggs (pictured) lead the pack as two homicide detectives who investigate a murder and butt heads with a young Silicon Valley entrepreneur, played by Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from the “Harry Potter” films). 10:01 p.m. Monday, June 16, on TNT (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
