LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- U.S. cable network TNT says it has ordered a TV movie based on Patricia Cornwell's crime novel "Hornet's Nest."

Starring Sherry Stringfield and Virginia Madsen, the telepicture is to air next year under the TNT Mystery Movie Night. Robbie Amell, Michael Boatman and Michael Silver are also set to star in the movie.

"Hornet's Nest" was a No. 1 New York Times best-seller. It is the first in Cornwell's series of mysteries featuring reporter Andy Brazil, as well as Police Chief Judy Hammer and her top deputy, Virginia West.

"Set in Charlotte, N.C., the story opens with everyone desperate to solve the latest crisis: a serial killer is specializing in out-of-town businessmen. Hammer and West make the murder investigation their top priority. But West is less than pleased when Hammer pairs her up with Brazil, a cub reporter assigned to cover the police department," a synopsis said.
