ONE FOR THE MONEY, TWO FOR THE SHOW, THREE MURDER SUSPECTS, GO �MCBRIDE� GO!
THERE ARE NO COLD CASES FOR FIVE-TIME EMMY� AWARD WINNER JOHN LARROQUETTE IN �MCBRIDE�
All New Episode of MCBRIDE, �Tune in for Murder,� Premieres August 14
When a popular drive-time radio host is arrested for murdering his partner, it
seems like a slam-dunk case � until McBride uncovers a list of other suspects that
includes virtually everyone else at the station. Five-time Emmy� Award-winner John
Larroquette (�Night Court,� �The John Larroquette Show�) returns as tough-minded,
tender-hearted cop-turned-attorney, McBride in �Tune in for Murder,� a two-hour
Hallmark Channel Mystery Movie which premieres on Sunday, August 14 (7/6c).
McBride also stars Marta DuBois (�L.A. Law�) as Detective Sgt. Roberta Hansen
and Matt Lutz (�Murder Without Conviction�) as Phil Newberry.
Created by mystery master Dean Hargrove, the Emmy� Award-winning executive
producer of �Columbo,� McBride is one of television�s most inventive characters, a
rough-around-the-edges smooth-talker whose laid back lifestyle belies a razor sharp
mind and dogged determination to uncover the truth.
Detective Sgt. Roberta Hansen (DuBois) is the no-nonsense plainclothes police
detective who finds the flirtatious McBride arresting, but skittish. McBride�s young
gumshoe partner, Phil Newberry (Lutz) is a gadget die-hard with the latest techno
wizardry to help McBride sniff out bad guys. Jesse (Kuma) is McBride�s constant
companion who remembers the days when a dog with a good nose could do the same
McBride only takes the hardest cases, has a soft spot for the underdog, and
possesses a unique ability to eliminate potential suspects through flashbacks that place
him squarely in the scene of the crime.
