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

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.
