In the series, Sedgwick plays CIA-trained Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, a former Atlanta detective brought to Los Angeles to head a special LAPD unit charged with cracking sensitive, high-profile murder cases. This top-notch investigator is highly skilled at diving deeply into a case, leaving no stone unturned as she pinpoints her suspect and draws out a confession.

Joining Sedgwick once again is THE CLOSER's two-time Screen Actors Guild Award�-nominated ensemble cast: Jon Tenney, J.K. Simmons, Corey Reynolds, Robert Gossett, G.W.

Chong.

SAVING GRACE, which airs Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), stars Academy Award� winner Holly Hunter as Grace Hanadarko, an intense Oklahoma City police detective at the top of her field. She is a forceful investigator whose wild personal life translates into a no-holds-barred approach to her detective work. When her life reaches its darkest, Grace begins being visited by an unconventional angel named Earl (Leon Rippy), who is determined to help her come to terms with her past so that she can get her future on track.

SAVING GRACE co-stars Kenneth Johnson, Bailey Chase, Laura San Giacomo, Bokeem Woodbine, Lorraine Toussaint, Gregory Cruz and Dylan Minnette. It comes to TNT from Fox Television Studios and creator Nancy Miller, who took home a Gracie Allen Award this year for her work. Miller also serves as executive producer on the series, along with Gary A. Randall Artie Mandelberg. Hunter, who earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for her work in the series, also serves as executive producer.
