"Last Ship," from executive producer Michael Bay, debuts Sunday, June 22 at 9/8 p.m. CT. The series, which stars Eric Dane ("Grey's Anatomy") and Rhona Mitra, revolves around a Navy vessel that may be humanity's last hope in the wake of a worldwide catastrophe.
It will be followed by the fourth season of the Noah Wyle-led sci-fi drama "Falling Skies" at 10/9 p.m. CT. As the war between the invading alien force and the humans and alien allies heats up, a new mysterious player enters the fray and could hold the key to victory for either side.
"Legends" will premiere on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at 9/8 p.m. CT. The series from "Homeland" executive producers Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary, and "Fringe" co-executive producer David Wilcox stars Sean Bean ("Game of Thrones") as a deep-undercover FBI agent who may be losing his grip on reality.
"For the past three summers, TNT has had great creative and commercial success with 'Falling Skies,' which has inspired us to continue to program for fans of sci-fi and action,” said Michael Wright, President and Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “This year, we’re going to launch 'The Last Ship' and 'Legends,' two expertly crafted shows that bring the storytelling scope and thrill-ride excitement of our favorite summer movies to series television. With their great writing, expansive casts and outstanding production quality, these are really fun, smart and addictive shows.”
The premiere dates for the summer seasons of "Major Crimes," "Rizzoli & Isles," "Perception," "Franklin & Bash" and "Dallas" will be announced at a later date. The cable network will also launch Stephen Bochco’s ("NYPD Blue") new crime drama “Murder in the First.”
