TNT continues to make Monday the most dramatic night of the week as its two top-notch original series � THE CLOSER and SAVED � continue Monday, June 26. This week, THE CLOSER�s lead character, Brenda Leigh Johnson (Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Kyra Sedgwick) investigates a possible gang-related shooting that hits a little too close to home for one of her peers at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). And on SAVED at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), Wyatt Cole (Tom Everett Scott) and his fellow paramedics deal with a vicious attack at a local gay bar while Cole�s conflict with his father intensifies.
SAVED � �Living Dead�
Directed by Dean White, Written by Joseph Dougherty
It�s a full moon on TNT�s newest, character-driven drama, as Wyatt Cole (Scott) and his paramedic partner John �Sack� Hallon (Omari Hardwick � Beauty Shop, Sucker Free City) are called to a bizarre scene in which a man has seemingly dropped from the sky onto a woman�s car. Shady government-type agents, however, prevent the pair from figuring out exactly what happened.
But this very strange night is just getting started: the paramedics are called to a brutal attack at a local gay bar, though it seems they aren�t the first to arrive. An imposter EMT named Larry has been showing up at emergency scenes, but disappearing before law enforcement can grab him. Newbie EMT Harper Sims (Michael McMillian � What I Like About You, Firefly) is himself nearly arrested after being mistaken for Larry in a sting operation and has to be bailed out by his reluctant partner, Angela de la Cruz (Tracy Vilar � The Steve Harvey Show, ER).
Back at the emergency room at Good Samaritan Hospital, Wyatt finds his worlds colliding. A young nurse he�s been sleeping with turns out to be working alongside Wyatt�s ex-girlfriend Dr. Alice Alden (Elizabeth Reaser � The Family Stone). To make matters worse, Wyatt�s overbearing father, Martin (David Clennon � thirtysomething, Syriana), who is unaware that Wyatt never re-applied for medical school, has also arrived to help content with an overrun of incoming emergencies.
Sack�s relationship with his son goes through a rough patch when he learns that the boy has been acting out at school. He also finds himself somewhat bewildered when a transgender woman named Tippi, a victim of the attack on the gay bar, recognizes Sack from his glory days as a football star, and the two strike up a tentative friendship.
After a night where nothing is exactly what it seems, Wyatt runs into his father in the doctors� locker room. He has to decide whether or not to tell his father the truth about medical school.
