The Closer
The No. 1 series in cable history returns to TNT for another riveting season.4 The transfixing, critically acclaimed, original drama stars Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick as a complicated, unique and confident LAPD interrogator who lacks a few social graces but will do whatever it takes to solve high-profile murder cases.
Saving Grace
In a critically acclaimed series that is unlike anything else on television, Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter stars as Grace, a feisty, unapologetic bad girl who has made many poor choices in her life.
