To ask Edward Burns how long he has been working on his richly detailed new TNT drama Public Morals is a complex thing.

Cancer-stricken billionaire Ivan Turing has a short time left on Earth and needs to know if death truly is the end, so he sets out to hire his own researchers. That’s the premise behind TNT’s new thought-provoking drama Proof, starring Matthew Modine and Jennifer Beals. “He, like Steve Jobs, began his business working out of his garage, tinkering, building things that the world has never seen or imagined before, and he’s parlayed that into an incredibly successful industry,” says […]
