Amazon is developing two new series within the “Bosch” universe.

Variety It has been learned that Amazon Studios is currently developing shows based on Michael Connelly’s characters Jerry Edgar and Renee Ballard. Edgar was portrayed by Jamie Hector during “Bush’s” seven-season run, while Ballard had never been featured on screen before.

On the Edgar show, Bush’s former partner was “tapped for an undercover FBI mission in Little Haiti, Miami,” according to the official logline. “In this charming city, she is forced to balance her new life with the swamp of the city, while chasing her mysterious past.”

Connelly will executive produce the series with Larry Andries (“How to Get Away with Murder,” “The Godfather of Harlem”). Fable Entertainment’s Henrik Baston and Melissa Ovett will executive produce, with Jasmine Russ co-executive producing.

Ballard’s show will see the detective take over the LAPD’s new cold case division. The description states, “More than just investigating unsolved crimes, Renee is dedicated to the department’s reputation and bringing justice to the community. Learning from retired ally and mentor Harry Bosch, Renee works her way up. – solves cases in unorthodox ways while navigating the politics of being a woman growing up in the LAPD.
