The Closer Description from Warner Bros.:
Golden Globe® winner and Emmy® nominee Kyra Sedgwick portrays Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, a CIA -trained detective who has been brought from Atlanta to Los Angeles to head up the Priority Homicide Division, a special unit of the LAPD that handles sensitive, high-profile murder cases. Despite her offbeat personality and tendency to step on people's toes, Brenda's tough-as-nails approach and track record prove her to be one of the country's leading investigators. Brenda is tapped to lead the team because she is a world-class interrogator, and when it comes to obtaining confessions, she is an expert "closer." However, her quirky attitude and hard-nosed approach to her job sometimes rub her colleagues the wrong way, as does the fact that she is a tough-minded Southern woman in a department dominated by men.
The fourth season of The Closer earned Sedgwick a fourth consecutive Golden Globe® nomination. She won the award in 2007 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series Drama. Sedgwick also earned Emmy® Award nominations for each of the first three seasons of The Closer as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance on all four seasons of the show. The cast received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series category during the show's first, third and fourth seasons.
As the series' premiere episode opens, Brenda arrives in Los Angeles and immediately finds herself thrust into a very different way of life. In her first case, Brenda is called upon to investigate a murder at the home of a multi-millionaire computer company executive. Brenda pursues leads in her case, eventually focusing on what may be a love affair gone wrong. When forensic evidence uncovers the truth about the victim's mysterious past, Brenda puts her skills to the test and proves to her critics that she is indeed the right woman for the job.
On the fourth season of The Closer, murderers are not the only ones giving Brenda a hard time. An ambitious newspaper reporter interferes as he tries to get a story on the Priority Homicide Division, resulting in disaster for the squad. Although Brenda and her team chalk up a string of successes (including catching a child's killer, a drive-by shooter and an arsonist who sets L.A.'s Griffith Park ablaze), the reporter's unflattering tell-all marks the end of the PHD. But viewers shouldn't ever count Brenda out. She brings her staff to the newly formed Major Crimes Division for assignments with expanded jurisdiction that extends to con artists, kidnappers, predators and, of course, killers. All of L.A.'s worst are going to meet L.A's best.
