TNT's Hit Series Major Crimes Ready to Light Up Fall
With All-New Episodes

Blockbuster Crime-Drama Returns Monday, Nov. 2, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

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 is set to begin its fall run on Monday, Nov. 2, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), followed by the return of TNT's completely re-imagined spy thriller Legends, starring Sean Bean.

In 2014, Major Crimes ranked as one of basic cable’s Top 10 series for the third consecutive year. This summer, it climbed into the Top 3 among basic cable's scripted series, with a linear audience of 7.7 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery. Overall, the show has reached an average of 8.8 million viewers per episode across TNT's linear, VOD, online and mobile platforms in its fourth season.

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. Her team of investigators includes G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza, Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Mike Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez, Kearran Giovanni as Detective Amy Sykes and Phillip P. Keene as tech expert Buzz Watson. Robert Gossett plays Assistant Chief Russell Taylor, Raydor's boss, while Jonathan Del Arco plays Dr. Morales, the medical examiner. Graham Patrick Martin plays Rusty Beck, a formerly homeless teen who has been adopted by Raydor.

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.

Created by James Duff, Major Crimes is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. Duff, Greer Shephard & Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace, Adam Belanoff and Leo Geter serve as executive producers.
