Prime Suspect is an American police procedural television drama series redeveloped by Alexandra Cunningham as a re-imagining of the original British series of the same name created by Lynda La Plante and starring Maria Bello as tough-as-nails NYPD homicide Detective Jane Timoney, an outsider who has just transferred to a new squad where her new colleagues already dislike her.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 22 September, 2011 to 22 January, 2012. There are 13 hour-long episodes in one season.

Prime Suspect premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Monday 3 September 2012, at 22h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

From Emmy Award-nominated producers Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) and Alexandra Cunningham (Desperate Housewives) comes the crime drama Prime Suspect that takes a look inside a New York City homicide department.

The series stars Maria Bello as tough-as-nails NYPD homicide Detective Jane Timoney, an outsider who has just transferred to a new squad where her new colleagues already dislike her.

Jane is confident and focused - and also rude, abrupt and occasionally reckless. She has her vices, and rumours of a questionable past follow her everywhere - but at the end of the day, she's an instinctively brilliant cop who can't be distracted from the only important thing: the prime suspect.

Also starring are Aidan Quinn as Lt. Kevin Sweeney, Brían F. O'Byrne as Det. Reg Duffy, Tim Griffin as Det. Augie Blando, Kirk Acevedo as Det. Luisito Calderon, Damon Gupton as Det. Evrard Velerio and Peter Gerety as Jane's father, Desmond Timoney.

Based on the critically acclaimed British television series of the same name, Prime Suspect was redeveloped for American audiences by Cunningham and Berg. Prime Suspect is produced by Universal Media Studios, ITV Studios America and Film 44.

Cunningham is the executive producer/writer along with executive producer/director Berg and executive producers Sarah Aubrey, Julie Meldal-Johnson, Paul Buccieri, Lynda La Plante and John McNamara.
