Maggie Q to Star as Renée Ballard in BOSCH Spinoff Series

Maggie Q to Star as Renée Ballard in BOSCH Spinoff Series
"Live Free or Die Hard" and "Nikita" actress Maggie Q has signed on to star in Prime Video's upcoming untitled "Bosch" spinoff series. This is the first show in the franchise based on Michael Connelly's books that will not be led by Titus Welliver.

The show follows Detective Renée Ballard (Q), who is tasked with running the LAPD's new cold-case unit — a poorly funded, all-volunteer unit with the largest case load in the city. Ballard approaches these frozen-in-time cases with empathy and determination. When she uncovers a larger conspiracy during her investigations, she'll lean on the assistance of her retired ally, Harry Bosch (Welliver), to navigate the dangers that threaten both her unit and her life.

The Renée Ballard character has not appeared on either "Bosch" or "Bosch: Legacy", and is based on Det. Mitzi Roberts from the LAPD. Ballard and Maggie Q share similar background — both were born and raised in Hawaii.

Connelly's Renée Ballard series consists of six books. The character was introduced in 2017's "The Late Show", named after the night shift that Ballard works. The other books in the series are "Dark Sacred Night" (2018), "The Night Fire" (2019), "The Dark Hours" (2021), and "Desert Star" (2022). A new book, titled "The Waiting" will be released on November 5.
