The Shield Creator's Next Project: Terriers

The Shield Creator's Next Project: Terriers


No, not the dogs — well, at least I don't think there are any dogs involved. Instead, that's just the title of The Shield creator Shawn Ryan's next project, which is being turned into a pilot at FX.

We first heard about the show (back before it had that title) when Ryan sold the idea after running into the FX president in a hallway. Now it's continuing on with a real shot at becoming a series, and we know a few more details about the project: the show is an hour-long dramedy about private investigators, specifically a pair of "partners with maturity issues who solve crimes while trying to avoid danger and responsibility."

Ted Griffin, who wrote Ocean's Eleven and one episode of The Shield, wrote the pilot, and he and Ryan will be the executive producers on the show.

Could you imagine Ryan leaving The Shield behind for a lighter world of bumbling private eyes? And where does the Terriers title come in?
