Written by Corbin-Miller, H-Town is based on the Echo Media/Sphere Media Plus Canadian cop drama series 19-2. In the U.S. version, when two Houston detectives from opposing sides of a multi-generational family feud are paired as partners, they find themselves surprisingly drawn to each other even as they investigate a case that may have far-reaching ramifications for both their families.
H-Town is based on the French-language Canadian police drama 19-2, which aired for three seasons, from 2011-15. An English-language adaptation, also titled 19-2, ran on Canada’s Bravo and CTV for four seasons, from 2014-2017. It was nominated for 37 Canadian Screen Awards, winning 5, including Best Dramatic Series, and also was nominated for Best Drama Series International Emmy Award. (You can watch a trailer below).
Corbin-Miller and Kramer executive produce the CBS adaptation with Echo Media’s Luc Chatelain and Sphere Media Plus’ Jocelyn Deschenes, executive producers of the Canadian 19-2 shows.
Corbin-Miller recently served as co-executive producer on ABC’s Conviction and NBC’s Law & Order: SVU and also has worked on Crossing Jordan, The Practice and ER. She is repped by Gersh, which also reps the format.
