Amazon has announced it will premiere all ten episodes of its first hour-long drama series “Bosch” on Friday, February 13 on Prime Instant Video in the US, UK and Germany.

Based on Michael Connelly’s 19 internationally best-selling Harry Bosch books, “Bosch” stars Titus Welliver (“Sons of Anarchy,” Argo) as Harry Bosch, Jamie Hector (“The Wire”) as Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino (“Being Human”) as Lt. Grace Billets, Lance Reddick (“Fringe,” “The Wire”) as Deputy Chief Irvin Irving, and Annie Wersching (“24,” “Extant”) as Julia Brasher, with Sarah Clarke (“24”) as Eleanor Wish and Jason Gedrick (“Luck”) as Raynard Waits.

The series follows the relentless LAPD homicide detective as he pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected killer in cold blood. When a killer who has confessed to the boy’s murder escapes custody and begins a murderous rampage across Los Angeles. Bosch and the killer are locked in a cat and mouse game, with the killer taunting Bosch as the investigation turns deeply personal. The case unearths Bosch’s buried past as well as entangling his ex-wife and 14-year-old daughter. The season takes the viewer through back streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles rarely seen on-screen. 

Guest stars on Bosch include Scott Wilson (“The Walking Dead”) as Dr. Guyot and Troy Evans (“ER”) as Detective Johnson, and was developed for television by Eric Overmyer (“Treme,” “The Wire,” “Homicide: Life on the Streets”) and Executive Produced by Overmyer, Connelly, and Henrik Bastin (“The Killing,” “Burn Notice”).

“We had a very strong response to the pilot from our customers and, after years of anticipation from the fan community, we are delighted to launch the complete first television season of Michael Connelly’s classic works of LA Noir,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios.

“I am very pleased with season one,” Connelly says. “We have been extremely loyal to the character and city in the books. I think anybody who likes Harry Bosch on the page is going to like him on screen too. Titus Welliver is perfectly cast and viewers are going to be drawn to him whether they’ve read the books or not.”
