Major Crimes takes television's favourite squad of detectives - known to viewers from the hit series The Closer - into bold new territory with this hit crime drama that ranked as basic cable's #1 new series of 2012. Now Major Crimes is back on the case for a thrilling second season as two-time Oscar® nominee Mary McDonnell continues as Captain Sharon Raydor, head of the Los Angeles Police Department's Major Crimes division, joined by an unforgettable ensemble cast: G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin, Jonathan Del Arco and Nadine Velazquez, with Robert Gossett as Assistant Chief Russell Taylor.
As the second season opens, the team immediately dives into some of the most challenging and fascinating crimes yet, including the murder of a big-time film producer's wife, an apparent murder-suicide and a high-speed car chase that leads to a triple homicide. Just as the squad seems to be adjusting to last year's leadership change, however, Deputy District Attorney Emma Rios (new series star Velazquez) arrives to challenge Raydor's intentions and shake up the department. Torn between what is right morally and what the law commands, Raydor and her team face more personal and professional struggles than ever as they continue to make deals and crack cases.
Major Crimes takes television's favorite squad of detectives - known to viewers from the hit series The Closer - into bold new territory. Set in the Los Angeles Police Department, the series stars Academy Award® and Emmy® nominee Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni and Graham Patrick Martin. The Closer veterans Robert Gossett, Jon Tenney and Jonathan Del Arco will also appear.
The series picks up where The Closer leaves off, centering on what it takes to secure an airtight conviction, exploring how the police and prosecutors work together to build a solid case that will result in a suspect confessing, signing a plea agreement or being found guilty in a court of law. With the same stellar producing team in place, Major Crimes looks to deliver the same high caliber of action and drama of the hit series it follows.
Assigned to a remote outpost in the 1860s West, Lt. John Dunbar fears the nearby Sioux Indians and expects to fight them. Instead, he befriends them and becomes the man in the middle of a brushfire of tension: the conflict between U.S expansion and Native Americans.
Kevin Costner plays Dunbar and makes one of Hollywood’s most impressive directorial debuts with this winner of seven Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director. Battles rage, fates collide, bison thunder across the prairie – the adventure is epic, heroic and stunning.
