Steven Weber is set for a season-long co-starring role in Murder In The First, TNT’s drama pilot co-created by Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal. Emmy winner Thomas Schlamme has come on board to direct the pilot, a murder mystery set in contemporary San Francisco that centers on two SFPD homicide detectives, Terry Seagrave (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they take on a case that seems more like a maze. Weber, repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment, will play Bill Wilkerson, Applicon CEO’s all-American personal pilot who is very protective of his boss. Playing a pilot is a familiar territory for Weber who portrayed one on the long-running NBC comedy series Wings.Also cast in the TNT pilot is child actress Mimi Kirkland (Safe Haven) as Hildy’s daughter. She is with Industry ans Kids Unlimited.
