DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) After a five-year hiatus, Judy returns to work as cop. She's both eager and nervous. Judy also is a single mother. How does that change her as a police officer? In the line of fire, which part will react first: mommy or cop? Welcome to Judy Lemen's suburban universe. Beneath the faade of planned communities and retail villages, San Carlos, CA is rife with store robberies, homemade porn, beauty salon shootouts, and a prostitution ring run out of the Cinnabon. Judy's not trying to save the world; she just wants to make a better life for herself and her seven-year-old daughter. She hopes to make detective in six months and maybe meet a nice guy along the way. Though her life has changed since Judy a street cop, her instincts are as sharp as ever she can still tackle fleeing suspects and drop perpetrators at 50 yards. But the real tough part is getting her fellow officers to stop thinking of her as just a mother and also see her as a good detective. The creators of "In Justice" and the executive producer of "Life As We Know It" combine "Weeds" and "Close to Home" for a police procedural with heart and humor. Starring Louise Lombard ("CSI") as a woman with the two toughest jobs in the world, crime-fighting... and motherhood.
