"Bosch" (TV show) is a drama series on Amazon Prime Instant Video that is based on Michael Connelly's best-selling Harry Bosch book series and written by Eric Overmyer ("Law & Order," "Treme") and Connelly. The series follows a relentless LAPD homicide detective as he pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood.

Primarily based on elements from Connelly's books "City of Bones" (2002), "The Concrete Blonde" (1994) and "Echo Park" (2006), Harry Bosch's investigation takes on a life and death urgency when a killer who has confessed to the boy's murder escapes custody and begins a murderous rampage across Los Angeles. Bosch and the killer are locked in a cat and mouse game, with the killer taunting Bosch as the investigation turns deeply personal. The case unearths Bosch's buried past as well as entangling his ex-wife and 14-year-old daughter. The season takes the viewer through back streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles rarely seen on-screen. There have been 19 Harry Bosch novels published since 1992, including 2014's number-one bestseller "The Burning Room."

The cast includes Titus Welliver ("Sons of Anarchy," "Argo") as Harry Bosch, Jamie Hector ("The Wire") as Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino ("Being Human") as Lt. Grace Billets, Lance Reddick ("Fringe," "The Wire") as Deputy Chief Irvin Irving, and Annie Wersching ("24," "Extant") as Julia Brasher, with Sarah Clarke ("24") as Eleanor Wish and Jason Gedrick ("Luck") as Raynard Waits. Guest stars include Scott Wilson ("The Walking Dead") as Dr. Guyot, Troy Evans ("ER") as Detective Johnson, Veronica Cartwright ("Resurrection") as Irene Saxon, Abraham Benrubi ("The Bridge") as Rodney Belk, Mark Derwin ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager") as Captain Harvey Pounds, Mimi Rogers ("Austin Powers") as Honey Chandler, and Alan Rosenberg ("The Guardian") as Dr. Golliher.

Season 2

Season 2 will be drawn from Connelly's best-selling novels "Trunk Music" and "The Drop." In the second season, the relentless LAPD detective will investigate the murder of a Hollywood producer who laundered money for the mob. He will also pursue serial killer Chilton Hardy and the investigations take Bosch from the Hollywood Hills down through the gritty back streets of L.A. and Las Vegas, threatening those closest to him — his teenage daughter and ex-wife.

Season 3

In the third season, based on Connelly's best-selling novels "The Black Echo" and "A Darkness More than Night," Bosch's teenage daughter, Maddie, has come to live with him and ushered into his personal life the everyday responsibilities of being a single father. Bosch remains a tenacious cop who struggles to attain justice in an imperfect system; a system in which the guilty sometimes go free, and marginalized and forgotten victims become anonymous statistics. Now, between the murder of a homeless veteran, the slaying of another man tied to several unsolved homicides, and a high-profile murder trial involving a Hollywood director, Bosch has taken on his most formidable cases to date.

"Bosch" is produced by Fabrik Entertainment in association with Amazon Studios with Henrik Bastin, Mikkel Bondesen, Eric Overmyer and Michael Connelly serving as executive producers. The series is co-executive produced by Pieter Jan Brugge ("Heat," "The Pelican Brief") and produced by Pat McKee ("Longmire") and Rachel Rusch ("Bill Maher: The Decider"). Episodes were directed by Jim McKay, Kevin Dowling, Ernest Dickerson, Roxann Dawson, Matt Earl Beesley, Alex Zakrzewski and Thomas Carter.
