ADDITIONAL NOTES: completed airing its first season on 8/23/13; has yet to be renewed for a second season
DESCRIPTION: (from Reelz's press release, June 2013) ReelzChannel today announced that the police procedural original series King will make its U.S. premiere Friday, July 5, 2013 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT. Homicide Detective Jessica King (Amy Price-Francis, The Cleaner) is a charismatic but unconventional cop whose unique eye for detail turns cases around. King sees what everyone else misses: in crime scenes, in evidence, in the motivations and drives of the suspects. She's a fearless and imaginative lateral thinker with a rare quality - King doesn't need to be liked and this quality gets her into a lot of trouble. Viewers will have an additional chance to watch King on Fridays at 12am ET/ 9pm PT. King is the lead investigator of Toronto's Major Crimes Task Force, the unit that handles the most volatile and challenging cases on the streets: murder, rape, robbery, gang violence, serial and predatory crime. Her eccentric, obsessive approach to police work, packaged in pencil skirts with tightly tailored white shirts, makes her stand out and not always in a good way. Colleagues may resent her but King's fierce intelligence, passion for her job, disarming honesty and wicked sense of humor overrides their doubts.
