Cable channels like TNT and TBS have been slowly closing the gap between broadcast networks primetime programming and their own for years. The upcoming slate of shows for the two Turner Entertainment Networks looks to help further close the divide.

The new offerings from TNT include a variety of both scripted and unscripted content with writers and producers like Steven Spielberg, Dick Wolf, and Jerry Bruckheimer.

"For a decade, we've been beating the drum the loudest - that cable is as good as broadcast," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks, according to TV Guide. "Now, our industry has reached a tipping point. From creative strength to ratings power, cable has emerged as the leader in television."

Coming to TNT in late 2013 is the crime drama Lost Angels while the station also picked up two unscripted programs, S.O.B. (Save Our Business) and the procedural Marshal Law: Texas.

Meanwhile TBS will air the comedy Ground Floor and unscripted works Trust Me, I'm A Game Show Host and Bam's Bad Ass Game Show.

However, what is most interesting is the projects TNT and TBS has in development, according to CNN. Amongst the 18 projects are Spielberg's sci-fi venture Portal House and soap opera-esque Crushed.

Comedies include Bad Parents, Dad, Stop Embarradding Me, Dream House, and Clipsters.

There will also be several crime dramas including Peter Gunn, The Last Cop, the Nicholas Sparks inspired A Bend in the Road, the OJ Simpson based Guilt by Association, Lew Archer,  and Tribecca.

As for unscripted fare, the two chanels will over Burn, a docudrama dealling with firefighters; Cop Swap; Monopoly, which is of course based of the classic board game; The Big Deal; Me Time with Diablo Cody; and Cheeseheads.
