‘Murder in the First’ Episode Guide (Aug. 4): Drug-Addled Socialite Found Dead

“Family Matters” (08/04/14) – In the aftermath of the Blunt verdict, the Homicide Department investigates a new death involving a drug-addicted socialite and her playboy husband.

As they pursue that case, Terry and Hildy also discover that key witnesses from the Kevin Neyers case have recanted their original statements. The inspectors must uncover the truth while keeping their investigation a secret from their superiors.

This episode was directed by Bethany Rooney. The story was by Steven Bochco & Eric Lodal.

TNT takes viewers deep inside a complex homicide investigation in “Murder in the First,” a powerful new crime drama co-created by Emmy-winner Steven Bochco and newcomer Eric Lodal. Taye Diggs (“Private Practice”) and Kathleen Robertson (“Boss”) star in the series, which follows a single murder investigation across an entire season.

Also starring are Tom Felton (“Harry Potter”), Mimi Kirkland (“Safe Haven”), Raphael Sbarge (“Once Upon a Time”), Lombardo Boyar (“The Bernie Mac Show”), Ian Anthony Dale (“Hawaii Five-0”), Bess Rous (“What Just Happened”), Nicole Ari Parker (“Revolution”), Currie Graham (“Raising the Bar”), Richard Schiff (“The West Wing”), James Cromwell (“Babe,” “L.A. Confidential”) and Steven Weber (“Dallas,” “Wings”).

The series follows homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) as they investigate two seemingly unrelated murders. The mystery deepens, however, when they find both murders have a common denominator in a Silicon Valley wunderkind (Felton). Murder in the First is being produced by TNT Originals, with Bochco and Lodal serving as executive producers.
