The Dime - Female Lead Crime Drama from Hell of Wheels Creators & Matt Reeves in Development at FOX

Fox has given a script commitment plus penalty to The Dime — a crime drama with a lesbian cop at the center — based on bestselling author Kathleen Kent’s new novel, from Hell on Wheels creators Tony Gayton and Joe Gayton, feature director Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) and 20th Century Fox TV.

Written and executive produced by the Gayton brothers, The Dime follows Brooklyn cop Betty Rhyzyck, a tough as nails firebrand, who moves with her girlfriend to Dallas to lead a group of detectives. Their more traditional sensibilities are a far cry from her blue state mentality and in order to survive, Betty and her team will have to put aside their differences. In the process, they might just discover that they’re more alike than they ever imagined. The novel was published by Hatchett Book Group in February.
