The Glades is an American police procedural television series created by Clifton Campbell about a Chicago detective who takes a job in South Florida after being falsely accused of sleeping with his captain's wife. He assumes it will afford him a more relaxing lifestyle, but he finds things are more complicated than he had imagined.
Jim Longworth is an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who gets shot by his captain after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his wife.
After being exiled from the department, Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle of nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum.
Only this town outside the Florida Everglades isn't quite as idyllic as he thought, as he finds people keep turning up murdered.
Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives to wear a badge.
Between practicing his short game, trying to get a date with Callie - a quick-witted, beautiful medical student with a 12 year-old son and a husband in prison - and trying to solve countless homicide cases, Longworth's transition to his new surroundings is a bit more difficult than expected.
He's realising the skies in this new town are always sunny...with a chance of homicide.
The Glades is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producers are Clifton Campbell (White Collar, Profiler, 21 Jump Street) for Innuendo Productions, Inc. and Gary Randall (Saving Grace) for Grand Productions, Inc.
