​Production on the first season of Bosch has begun and so far so good. So great, actually. We’re filming extra scenes for the pilot and then nine more episodes that combine elements of The Concrete Blonde, City of Bones and Echo Park. Yes, Echo Park. We decided to add the creepy world of killer Raynard Waits into the mix. That’s him getting arrested in the photo. In Waits’ case, the arrest only starts the story.

I’ve watched a lot of scenes this week with Harry Bosch and his partner Jerry Edgar. Played by Titus Welliver and Jamie Hector, I’m beginning to see the interplay between these two characters that is so vital in the books. They both are great and I can’t say enough about Titus. As Harry Bosch, he’s got to carry the biggest burden and he does it well. More so than me now, he’s the keeper of Harry Bosch and I’m not worried in the least.

We have many other fine actors aboard as well. Scott Wilson is back. Mimi Rogers and Jason Gedrick have taken on important roles. I spent a couple days watching an actor named Rob Brownstein do an excellent job as Nicholas Trent from City of Bones. I could go on and on, and don’t get me even started on locations. But I think we’ll be showing sights and sounds of LA that are not often seen. It’s very exciting. Stay tuned for news and updates here. -MC
