“I used to get asked, ‘How many series are enough?’ I used to say, ‘We’ll know when we get there,'” says Turner’s Michael Wright, executive VP/head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. “I’m pretty sure it’s six [for TNT in the summer]. I like where we are right now. I like having three nights with a two-hour block. It’s enough of a presence that you can create audience flow night-to-night. You can really make an impact but it’s still contained enough that…you’re not in a place of one of those shows becoming an afterthought.”
But will Dark Blue be one of the six next summer?
