What it’s about: The guitar-laced sounds of Memphis set the stage for this George Clooney-produced cop drama about sometime blues singer Dwight Hendricks (My Name Is Earl‘s Jason Lee), a police detective with a deep connection to the city and its music scene.
What to expect: ”It’s not just about the case of the week,” says Lee. ”It’s about the character and his growth, struggles, and relationships.” Indeed, we’ll also see Dwight tussle with his no-nonsense boss (Alfre Woodard), face his ex-wife (Sunny Mabrey), and take care of his mother (Celia Weston). But it’s his protective nature that can land Dwight in hot water. ”Fortunately and unfortunately, he’ll always be burdened with trying to fix everything for everybody, and that’s not always a good thing,” Lee says. Plus, look for some of Earl‘s guest stars — Juliette Lewis and Giovanni Ribisi — to appear early in the season.
