Prime Suspect (NBC 2011-2012, Maria Bello, Aidan Quinn)

Based on the critically acclaimed British television series of the same name, Prime Suspect was redeveloped for American audiences by writer Alexandra Cunningham, director Peter Berg — and starred Maria Bello as tough-as-nails Detective Jane Timoney.

Timoney finds that being a homicide detective in New York City is tough enough and having to contend with a male-dominated police department to get respect makes it that much tougher. She’s an outsider who has just transferred to a new precinct dominated by an impenetrable clique of a boys’ club. Timoney has her own vices too — with a questionable past — and she tends to be forceful, rude and reckless. But she’s also a brilliant cop who keeps her eye on one thing: the prime suspect.
