"The Closer", ad-supported cable's #1 series of all time, returns for its fifth season with star Kyra Sedgwick as Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson.  She's a top notch investigator with unparalleled interrogation skills, but her work tends to take first priority in her life.  The incredible ensemble cast includes J.K. Simmons, Corey Reynolds, Robert Gossett, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Raymond Cruz, Michael Paul Chan, Phillip P. Keene and Jon Tenney.

"Raising The Bar" is TNT's emotionally powerful legal drama that follows the lives of young lawyers who work on opposite sides - the public defender's office and the district attorney's office - as well as those who sit in judgment on their cases.  Mark Paul Gosselaar, Jerry Kellerman, Gloria Reuben and Jane Kaczmarek all star.

"Wedding Day"
is TNT's first big venture into unscripted television.  Every couple dreams of having the perfect wedding.  For many, it's the most important and emotion day of their lives.  But for some, insurmountable obstacles create barriers to making their dream day a reality.  In "Wedding Day", deserving couples from all over the U.S. will get a helping hand to ensure the most important day of their lives is also the most magical. 

stars Jada Pinkett Smith as Christina Hawthorne, the forceful-yet-caring director of nursing at Richmond Trinity Hospital in Richmond, VA.  Recently widowed,s he also has to take on her equally important role as a mother to a wistful, rebellious teenage daughter.  Joining Jada in the cast are Michael Vartain ("Alias"), Christina Moore ("90210"), Suleka Mathew ("Men in Trees") and David Julian Hirsh ("Lovebites"). 

"Saving Grace" stars Holly Hunter as Grace Hanadarko, a gutsy Oklahoma City police detective who holds nothing back, whether it's on the job or in her personal life.  Returning for its third season this summer, the series will follow Grace as she investigates brutal crimes while also trying to deal with her emotionally fragile partner and figure out the latest cryptic message from her last-chance angel.  Cast also includes Leon Rippy, Kenneth Johnson, Bailey Chase, Gregory Cruz, Yani King, Dylan Minnette, Lorraine Touissant and Laura San Giacomo. 

returns for season 2 after a successful winter run.  The gang of outlaws is back with more elaborate scams designed to exact revenge against those who use power and wealth to victimize people.  Timothy Hutton stars as Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator determined to bring down the kind of corrupt bigwigs whose neglect led to the death of his son.  His highly skilled team includes Gina Bellman (the grifter), Christian Kane (the brawn), Aldis Hodge (the brains) and Beth Riesgraf (the thief). 

"Dark Blue"
is the new fast-paced undercover police drama from producer Jerry Bruckheimer that follows the exploits of a crack undercover team of police officers so covert, many of their own colleagues don't even know they are involved.  Dylan McDermott stars as the groups leader, Carter Shaw, a deeply wounded character who has lost his wife and much of his former life as he struggles to bring down bad guys through complex undercover assignments.  Omari Hardwick (TNT's "Saved"), Logan Marshall-Green ("The O.C.") and Nicki Aycox ("Supernatural") also star.
