The two-hour Dec. 4 airing, entitled �Serving the King,� is a two-part episode with the first part directed by two-time Tony nominee Arvin Brown (The National Health, Ah Wilderness!) and the second part directed by Sedgwick�s multi-talented husband, Kevin Bacon. In it, Deputy Chief Johnson is called upon by her old CIA mentor (two-time Emmy� winner William Daniels) to assist in an off-the-record investigation of a would-be defector found murdered in Los Angeles.
