DENNIS FARINA JOINS CAST AS SLICK DETECTIVE WHEN POLICE PROBE SLAYING OF GULF WAR VETERAN; NEW YORK MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG GUEST-STARS -- Dennis Farina ("Get Shorty") joins the cast as Detective Joe Fontana, a stylish veteran uneasily paired with Detective Green (Jesse L. Martin) when a former female Guardsman from the second Gulf War is found murdered -- and evidence points to the vengeful Iraqi sister of a an ex-inmate at infamous Abu Ghraib prison. However, when D.A.s McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Southerlyn (Elisabeth Rohm) begin to prosecute, they discover that the suspect's lawyer boldly plans to defend his client as an "enemy soldier" -- subject only to the terms of the Geneva Convention. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg guest-stars as himself. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Thompson also star.
