Given how common spinoffs have been as of late, the news that TNT is developing their own spinoff from The Closer isn’t all that surprising. The Closer is cable’s #1 drama and has even attracted Emmy attention so you can hardly fault the network for trying to capitilize on that exposure.
The spinoff is being headed by creator/executive producer James Duff, and TNT has confirmed that it has handed out a script order for the spinoff but has declined to comment any further. Duff is co-writing the story with his Closer co-executive producer Adam Belanoff and Michael Berchem.
