Prime Suspect

About the Show

From Emmy Award-nominated producers Peter Berg (NBC's "Friday Night Lights") and Alexandra Cunningham ("Desperate Housewives") comes the crime drama "Prime Suspect" that takes a look inside a New York City homicide department. The series stars Maria Bello ("A History of Violence") as tough-as-nails NYPD homicide Detective Jane Timoney, an outsider who has just transferred to a new squad where her new colleagues already dislike her. Jane is confident and focused - and also rude, abrupt and occasionally reckless. She has her vices, and rumors of a questionable past follow her everywhere - but at the end of the day, she's an instinctively brilliant cop who can't be distracted from the only important thing: the prime suspect.

Also starring are Aidan Quinn ("Unknown") as Lt. Kevin Sweeney, BrĂ­an F. O'Byrne ("Flash Forward") as Det. Reg Duffy, Tim Griffin ("Star Trek") as Det. Augie Blando, Kirk Acevedo ("Fringe") as Det. Luisito Calderon, Damon Gupton ("The Last Airbender") as Det. Evrard Velerio and Peter Gerety ("Blue Bloods") as Jane's father, Desmond Timoney.

Based on the critically acclaimed British television series of the same name, "Prime Suspect" has been redeveloped for American audiences by Cunningham and Berg. "Prime Suspect" is produced by Universal Media Studios, ITV Studios America and Film 44. Cunningham is the executive producer/writer along with executive producer/director Berg and executive producers Sarah Aubrey, Julie Meldal-Johnson, Paul Buccieri, Lynda La Plante and John McNamara.
