Brenda Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick, THE WOODSMAN, BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY) arrives from Atlanta to head up the LAPD's Priority Homicide Division, a unit that specialises in sensitive, high-profile criminal cases. Almost immediately, her mix of brassy toughness and Southern sass begins to rub the mostly male policemen the wrong way. They resent this eccentric, folksy, and occasionally neurotic woman running the show. But when it comes to her CIA-trained interrogation skills, they're forced to admit that she's a pro's pro, a psychological surgeon who gets inside the subjects' minds and draws out their darkest secrets and confessions. In the explosive first series, Johnson and her team tackle the rape and murder of a politician's daughter, an escalating gangland war, the assassination of an Iranian businessman, and other dangerous crimes. Through all this, Johnson deals with her troubled past, her problematic romances, and even betrayal by members of her own team. Riveting police drama from the team behind NIP TUCK.
