About the Show
Hit drama “Crossing Jordan” heads into its sixth season and continues to explore disturbing topical crimes, while following a cadre of coroners who use their forensic skills to help the Boston police department bring murderers to justice and closure to victims’ families. Jill Hennessy (NBC’s “Law & Order”) stars as Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh, a sexy, smart and fearless medical examiner with a checkered past. She works under the guidance of Dr. Garrett Macy (Miguel Ferrer, “Traffic”), the no-nonsense head of the morgue, and alongside Detective Woodrow “Woody” Hoyt (Jerry O’Connell, “Jerry Maguire”), who puts in the legwork to hunt down the perpetrators of the crimes they investigate. Yet, Jordan’s unorthodox methods constantly test her professional and personal relationships, as well as put her at odds with Woody’s partner and newest love interest, Detective Tallulah “Lu” Simmons (Leslie Bibb, “Popular”). Additional support for the investigative team is provided by grief counselor Lily Lebowski (Kathryn Hahn, “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”), forensic entomologist “Bug” (Ravi Kapoor, “Gideon’s Crossing”) and criminalist Nigel Townsend (Steve Valentine, “The Muse”). This season, trouble is in store for Jordan and her colleagues when Special Prosecutor William Ivers (Jeffrey Donovan, “Touching Evil”) is appointed to investigate the morgue; and Kate Switzer (Brooke Smith, “Silence of the Lambs”), a prickly medical examiner, joins the coroners’ office. “Crossing Jordan” is from Tailwind Productions in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Tim Kring (NBC’s “Heroes”) is creator and executive producer; Dennis Hammer (NBC's "Heroes"), Allan Arkush (NBC's "Heroes"), Jon Cowan ("American Dreams"), Robert Rovner (NBC's "American Dreams") and Kathy McCormick (NBC's "Law & Order") are executive producers.
