Season 1 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 include Nip/Tuck. Beneath Johnson&rsquo. s soft drawl is a tough attitude that antagonized 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, politicos, zillionaires and other LA-LA-Land types.
Season 2 An offbeat personality, a tough-as-nails approach and a track record as one of the country's leading investigators - these are just a few of the trails exhibited by television's next great detective, Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, played by three-time Golde Globe Award nominee Kyra Sedgewick in The Closer. In her first lead role in a dramatic series, Sedgwick plays a tough CIA-trained detective, with Southern cha rm, who has been brought from Atlanta to Los Angeles to head up the Priority Murder Squad, a special unit of the LAPD that handles sensitive, hogh-profile murder cases. The Closer is executive produced by the team behind Nip/Tuck.
Season 3 The biggest cases demand the best cops. So when a little girl goes missing, or a Homeland Security official takes a long drive off a short cliff, or a '90s serial killer revives his career in the 21st century, the LAPD knows to call Brenda Johnson and her crack team from the Priority Homicide Division. The Closer returns for another incendiary season, and again holding the match is Kyra Sedgwick, who has created one of TV's unforgettable cha racters. Sedgwick "struck gold with the role of crafty, disorganized, snack-obsessed LAPD interrogator Brenda Johnson in [this] funny-dark, cha racter-rich procedural" (Lynn Smith, Los Angeles Times). Go on the case with the whodunit series that shows how it's done.
Season 4 Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) now has more than murders giving her a hard time. An ambitious newspaper reporter keeps getting in the way as he tries to get a story on the Priority Homicide Division. The result: disaster for the squad. Although Brenda and her team chalk up a string of successes (including catching a child's killer, a drive-by shooter and a murder who sets Griffith Park ablaze), the reporter's unflattering tell-all marks the end of the PHD. But don't ever count Brenda out. She brings her staff to the newly formed Major Crimes Division for assignments with expanded jurisdiction that extends to con artists, kidnappers, predators and, of course, killers. All of L.A.'s worst are going to meet L.A.'s best.
