As the temperatures begin to fall, TNT's hit drama "Major Crimes" is getting fired up for a run of all-new episodes. In the wake of another spectacular performance as one of basic cable's Top 3 scripted series this summer, Major Crimes will up the ante with a collection of unforgettable cases tackled by America's favorite squad of detectives. Oscar and Emmy nominee Mary McDonnell heads the extraordinary ensemble cast that includes G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin and Jonathan Del Arco, along with Robert Gossett.
Major Crimes focuses on how the American justice system approaches the art of the deals as law enforcement officers and prosecutors work together to score a conviction. In the series, McDonnell stars as Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor, who heads up a special squad within the LAPD that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes.
This fall on "Major Crimes", the division will be called upon to investigate the death of four wealthy one percenters dumped outside the emergency room of an L.A hospital. In the next episode, Sharon's ex-husband, Jack Raydor (guest star Tom Berenger) returns to defend a man who wants to withdraw a hand-written confession admitting to killing his wife. Sharon and team will also investigate a murder during the taping of a reality competition show pitting married couples against each other. And Detective Andy Flynn will get tripped up in pursuit of a mysterious murder suspect with great legs, leading to a closer relationship with Sharon than either of them planned.
