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

Published

on

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.
