L.A. is where famous people live ... and die. A celebrity death is big news. But a celebrity murder! That's a 24/7 media frenzy. So the LAPD forms the Priority Murder Squad to handle those high-risk situations before they get out of hand and hires Atlanta's CIA-trained ace interrogator Brenda Johnson to run it. Her job: get the confessions that lead to convictions. And get them fast.
Kyra Sedgwick stars as Johnson in the hit crime series from the production company whose credits includes Nip/Tuck. Beneath Johnson's soft drawl is a tough attitude that antagonises her co-workers, despite her skill at cracking cases, Behind her back, cops call her Scarlett O'Hara. But Johnson just calls 'em as she sees 'em, even if that means putting the heat on stars, politics, zillionaires and other La-La-Land types.
