David Gabriel (Corey Reynolds) Agent Fritz Howard (Jon Tenney) Det. Lt. Provenza (G.W. Bailey) The Closer is a 60 minute crime drama series on TNT about a female deputy police chief of the Los Angeles Police Department who has an uncanny ability to solve the most difficult cases and to secure confessions from the perpetrators.
The Closer (2005) Kyra Sedgwick stars in this Emmy-winning cop drama as Dep. Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, a CIA-trained interrogator now working for the LAPD, where she uses charm and a disarming Southern drawl to get confessions out of the wiliest murderers. She uses peculiar methods that often infuriate her boss (J.K. Simmons), but Brenda and the detectives in her major case squad (including Corey Reynolds and G.W. Bailey) always close the case.
