Closer, The: The Complete Seasons 1 - 3
The Closer: The Complete First Season
L.A. is where famous people live...and die. A celebrity death is big news. But a celebrity murder? That's a 24/7 media frenzy. So the LAPD forms the Priority Murder Squad to handle those high-risk situations before they get out of hand and hires Atlanta's CIA-trained ace interrogator Brenda Johnson to run it. Her job: get the confessions that lead to convictions. And get them fast.
Kyra Sedgwick stars as Johnson in the hit crime series from the production company whose credits include Nip/Tuck. Beneath Johnson's soft drawl is a tough attitude that antagonized her co-workers, despite her skill at cracking cases. Behind her back, cops call her Scarlett O'Hara. But Johnson just calls 'em as she sees 'em, even if that means putting the heat on stars, politicos, zillionaires and other LA-LA-Land types.
The Closer: The Complete Second Season
Brenda's back. Finally accepted by her LAPD homicide team after a year of hard-won victories, Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson spends less time fighting her co-workers and more time fighting the bad guys - like whoever left a body in Provenza's garage, or dropped a porn star's head in a dumpster, or offed a drug-addicted heiress. And there's almost as much happening on the domestic scene as Brenda and Fritz put the flame under theirs when Fritz moves in.
Kyra Sedgwick reprises her acclaimed role of Brenda and makes her the brilliant, complex, flawed, funny and totally irresistible heart of this crime-series powerhouse. Clue yourself in!
The Closer: The Complete Third Season
Humor. Heart. Homicide. All clues point to Season 3.
The biggest cases demand the best cops. So when a little girl goes missing, or a Homeland Security official takes a long drive off a short cliff, or a '90s serial killer revives his career in the 21st century, the LAPD knows to call Brenda Johnson and her crack team from the Priority Homicide Division.
The Closer returns for another incendiary season, and again holding the match is Kyra Sedgwick, who has created one of TV's unforgettable characters. Sedgwick "struck gold with the role of crafty, disorganized, snack-obsessed LAPD interrogator Brenda Johnson in [this] funny-dark, character-rich procedural" (Lynn Smith, Los Angeles Times). Go on the case with the whodunit series that shows how it's done.
