Directed by Clark Johnson (The Wire, S.W.A.T.), the show will star Amy Price-Francis as a âsmart, sexy, funnyâ? detective, Jessica King.
We meet King in the dreary depths of a call-centre basement – her career in tatters. After exposing corruption in the highest level of police ranks almost two years ago, the âambitious loudmouthâ? was promptly demoted and now has a chip the size of a comedy cop doughnut on her shoulder.
But after a high profile case goes pear-shaped, King is called on to head up the Major Crimes Task Force new unitâ¦
â¦and trim a few oversized male egos down to size.
Already a hit on Showcase in the US, King will debut on British TV on Universal Channel, Thursday 5 April at 10pm.
It just so happens that OTB will be talking to the Queen of King, Amy P-F (24, Californication), next week so watch out for that.Â In the meantime, check out the aforementioned foxy trailer from Universal:
