DESCRIPTION:
(from WGN America's press release, June 2018) WGN America unveiled two new originals today, exhibiting the full spectrum of the beloved detective procedural genre: lighthearted detective comedy "Carter," starring Jerry O'Connell ("Billions"), Sydney Poitier Heartsong ("Chicago P.D.") and Kristian Bruun ("Orphan Black"), and crime drama "Gone," starring Chris Noth ("Sex and the City," "Law & Order," "The Good Wife"), Leven Ramblin (The Hunger Games) and Danny Pino ("CSI: Miami"). "Carter" is a sharp, 10-episode series that revolves around Harley Mackay (O'Connell), an actor playing a detective on a hit television show until he is forced to retreat to his sleepy hometown after an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood. Now that he's back, he taps into his acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with his two best friends, Sam Shaw (Heartsong) and Dave Leigh (Bruun). "Carter" will make its debut on WGN America on Tuesday, August 7.
