About TNT's The Closer

For seven memorable seasons, Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson and the LAPD's Major Crimes unit have closed some of television's most intriguing, mind-bending and surprising cases. This summer, Johnson and her team face their final cases together as the record-breaking blockbuster series starring Emmy(R) winner Kyra Sedgwick comes to an end. Sedgwick is joined by The Closer's extraordinary Screen Actors Guild Award(R)-nominated cast includes Jon Tenney as Brenda's husband, FBI Special Agent Fritz Howard; J.K. Simmons as Police Chief Will Pope; Corey Reynolds as Detective Sergeant David Gabriel; Robert Gossett as Commander Taylor; G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza; Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Mike Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez and Phillip P. Keene as audio-visual technician Buzz Watson. Two-time Oscar(R) nominee Mary McDonnell also stars Captain Sharon Raydor, the role she will continue TNT's new series Major Crimes, which is slated to premiere right after The Closer's Aug. 13 series finale.

The Closer is produced for TNT by The Shephard/Robin Company, in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series was created by James Duff, who serves as executive producer with Greer Shephard, Michael M. Robin, Kyra Sedgwick and Rick Wallace.

About TNT's Perception

It's mind-over-murder as Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Eric McCormack stars in this all-new drama series about an eccentric neuroscience professor with paranoid schizophrenia who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, with Rachael Leigh Cook as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce's former student who asks him to consult on certain cases; Arjay Smith as Max Lewicki, who serves as Pierce's teaching assistant; Kelly Rowan as Natalie Vincent, Daniel's best friend and every bit his intellectual equal. In addition, award-winning actor LeVar Burton plays Paul Haley, a dean at the university and Pierce's friend.

Perception, which comes to TNT from ABC Studios, was created by executive producer Ken Biller (Star Trek: Voyager, Smallville) and co-executive producer Mike Sussman (Star Trek: Enterprise), with McCormack serving as producer.
