LIFETIME TO LAUNCH COMPELLING, NEW SCRIPTED SERIES "AGAINST THE WALL" ON JULY 31

All-New Drama Stars Rachael Carpani, Treat Williams and Kathy Baker

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 29, 2011) - Lifetime Television will launch the compelling, new one-hour drama Against the Wall, starring Rachael Carpani (The Glades, NCIS: Los Angeles), Treat Williams (127 Hours, Everwood) and Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award winner Kathy Baker (Picket Fences, Medium), on Sunday, July 31, at 10PM ET/PT.

Against the Wall follows the trials and tribulations of "Abby Kowalski" (Carpani), a single Chicago police officer who finally scores her dream job as a detective; but it turns out a nightmare for her close-knit family of cops. As the newest hire in the department's Internal Affairs division, Abby suddenly finds herself at odds with her fellow officers, including her father and three brothers. She must now figure out how she can pursue her dream of being a detective while keeping her family intact. Williams and Baker star as Abby's parents "Don" and "Sheila." Rounding out the cast as her brothers are Brandon Quinn (Entourage) as "Richie," Steve Byers (Smallville) as "Steve" and James Thomas (Covert Affairs) as "Donnie." Additionally, Marisa Ramirez (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) stars as Abby's partner "Lina Flores," Daniel Kash (The Dresden Files) is her boss "Lieutenant Papadol," Andrew Walker (Maybe It's Me) plays Richie's partner "Brody," Mayko Nguyen (Lifetime's Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy) is Abby's neighbor "Mackie Phan" and Chris Johnson (The Vampire Diaries) appears as "Danny Mitchell," a lawyer and old friend of Abby's.

Nancy Miller (Saving Grace, Any Day Now) is executive producer of Against the Wall, from Universal Cable Productions, with writer/creator Annie Brunner (Saving Grace, Huff) serving as supervising producer. Lifetime has ordered 13 hour-long episodes of Against the Wall.
