Sherry Stringfield and Virginia Madsen Track a Ruthless Serial Killer
In TNT Original Movie Adaptation of Patricia Cornwell's Hornet's Nest
Award-winning actresses Sherry Stringfield (ER) and Virginia Madsen (Sideways) play cops on the trail of a ruthless serial killer in TNT's all new original movie adaptation of the chart-topping bestseller Hornet’s Nest. Based on a book by America’s #1 crime novelist, Patricia Cornwell, whose works have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide, Hornet's Nest also stars Robbie Amell (Picture This), Michael Boatman (The Good Wife) and Michael B. Silver (ER). The movie premieres Saturday, March 31, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TNT.
Hornet’s Nest, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller, is the first in Cornwell’s series of mysteries featuring Police Chief Judy Hammer (Madsen); her top deputy, Virginia West (Stringfield); and reporter Andy Brazil (Amell). Set in Charlotte, N.C., the story opens with everyone desperate to solve the latest crisis: a serial killer is specializing in out-of-town businessmen. Hammer and West make the murder investigation their top priority. But West is less than pleased when Hammer pairs her up with Brazil, a cub reporter assigned to cover the police department. Boatman plays Richard Panesa, publisher of the newspaper for which Brazil works. And Silver is Deputy Chief Adam Goode, who frequently butts heads with West.
Hornet’s Nest was adapted by screenwriter Dee Johnson, whose credits include TNT’s Southland and Rizzoli & Isles. Jim Head (Salem Falls, Ricochet) serves as executive producer, along with Cornwell, who recently released Red Mist (G.P. Putnam’s Sons) and Millicent Shelton (Californication, 30 Rock) serves as director.
