SHARE

This video feature takes us behind the scenes to give us a taste of making TNT’s Murder in the First. It includes comments from Tom Felton, know best for the Harry Potter films.

Two murders have a common denominator and lead to Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Tom Felton) [Editor: aka Steve Jobs?]. Tom said of his role “What can be a very nice sweet guy can also be someone very terrifying,”

The series follows two homicide detectives, Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they investigate the murders.

Kathleen tells how the series has some powerful elements, “There is sex, there is power, there is extreme beauty, extreme wide play, extreme poverty”. And co-star Taye Diggs concluded that ‘When you mix those elements you have explosions happening”.
