TNT Revs Up for Second Season of THE CLOSER with Eight-Hour Marathon of First-Season Episodes

Marathon Kicks Off Sunday, June 11, at 10 a.m. with Series� Pilot Episode

Kyra Sedgwick Returns in THE CLOSER Monday, June 12, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT); Second-Season Premiere To Air Uninterrupted and Commercial-Free, Sponsored by Audi

As TNT prepares to launch the second season of its hugely popular and critically acclaimed original series THE CLOSER, the network is giving viewers an opportunity to get a crash course on the series� first season with a Sunday, June 11, marathon that kicks off at 10 a.m. (ET/PT). Among the episodes slated for the marathon are the series� dynamic pilot episode and the gripping first-season finale (complete schedule attached). THE CLOSER, starring Golden Globe� and Screen Actors Guild Award� nominee Kyra Sedgwick (Something to Talk About, Loverboy, TNT�s Door to Door), will begin its second season Monday, June 12, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), with its first episode, �Blue Blood,� being presented uninterrupted and commercial-free, sponsored by Audi.

THE CLOSER follows the ever-challenging world of Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson (Sedgwick), a transplant from Atlanta who heads up the Priority Homicide Division of the Los Angeles Police Department. Her position on this elite detective squad, which handles high-profile cases of a sensitive nature, is a tenuous balancing act. She faces sometimes-antagonistic roadblocks, even from her own peers, but she and her team forge ahead solving difficult crimes, despite some who are still wary of her unconventional style.

The second season of THE CLOSER will feature the return of the entire SAG Award�-nominated ensemble cast. In addition to Sedgwick, the cast includes Jon Tenney (You Can Count on Me, Get Real) as FBI Agent Fritz Howard, Brenda�s love interest who also sometimes assists her on investigations; J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Law & Order, Oz) as Brenda�s boss, Assistant Police Chief Will Pope, with whom she once had an affair; Corey Reynolds (The Terminal, Tony nominee for Hairspray) as Sgt. David Gabriel, Brenda�s right-hand man; Robert Gossett (Arlington Road, The Net) as Commander Taylor, head of the robbery homicide division and a frequent thorn in Brenda�s side; G.W. Bailey (M*A*S*H, St. Elsewhere, Police Academy) as quick-witted veteran Detective Lt. Provenza; Tony Denison (Melrose Place, The Amy Fisher Story) as disgruntled Detective Andy Flynn; Michael Paul Chan (Robbery Homicide Division, The Insider) as technology-minded Detective Mike Tao; Raymond Cruz (Collateral Damage, Training Day) as Detective Julio Sanchez; and Gina Ravera (The Temptations, Soul Food) as Detective Irene Daniels.

THE CLOSER launched June 13, 2005, with a delivery of 5,259,000 households, making the premiere ad supported cable�s #1 original scripted series telecast ever. The series went on to finish its first season as cable�s #1 new original series of the year among targeted adult demos, viewers and households.

THE CLOSER comes to TNT from The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Bros. Television and is executive-produced by Greer Shephard (nip/tuck, The D.A.), Michael M. Robin (nip/tuck, The D.A., NYPD Blue) and James Duff (The D.A., The Agency) and produced by Andrew J. Sacks (The D.A, Adaptation and Two Soliders). Gil Garcetti, Los Angeles district attorney from 1992 to 2000, is a consulting producer on the series.
