TNT Gives Fans of THE CLOSER Ultimate Holiday Package, Including All-New Two-Hour Special Event Airing Dec. 4, Thanksgiving Day Marathon of Season 1 and Re-Broadcast of Season 2

Emmy� Nominee Kyra Sedgwick Stars in Ultra-Popular, Critically Acclaimed Detective Drama; Husband Kevin Bacon Directs Second Hour of December Event

Description: THE CLOSER stars 2006 Emmy�, Golden Globe� and Screen Actors Guild Award� nominee Kyra Sedgwick as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, who heads up the LAPD�s Priority Homicide Division. 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. Through a winding and complex case, Brenda must find the common thread linking a former KGB agent, the murder of several CIA agents, a young Lebanese boy thought to be a terrorist and 20 pounds of missing, weapons-grade plutonium.
