Season 1

Against the Wall is an American police procedural television drama series created by Annie Brunner which follows Abby Kowalski, a five year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, who in order to pursue her dream career as a detective takes the only opening available: in the Internal Affairs Division.

Abby's decision to join the department's internal affairs division puts her at odds with members of her own family, themselves members of the Chicago Police Department. Now Abby must find a way to do her job as an IAD detective without tearing her family apart.

The series aired in the USA on Lifetime from 31 July to 23 October, 2011. There are 13 hour-long episodes in one season.

Against the Wall premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series Zone channel on Monday 15 July 2013, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast in a double bill, weekly.

Synopsis

Rachael Carpani (The Glades, NCIS: Los Angeles), Treat Williams (127 Hours, Everwood) and Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Kathy Baker (Picket Fences, Medium) star in Against the Wall, a compelling, one-hour drama.

Against the Wall follows the trials and tribulations of Abby Kowalski (Carpani), a single Chicago police officer who finally scores her dream job as a detective; but it turns out a nightmare for her close-knit family of cops.

As the newest hire in the department's Internal Affairs division, Abby suddenly finds herself at odds with her fellow officers, including her father and three brothers. She must now figure out how she can pursue her dream of being a detective while keeping her family intact.

Williams and Baker star as Abby's parents Don and Sheila. Rounding out the cast as her brothers are Brandon Quinn (Entourage) as Richie, Steve Byers (Smallville) as Steve and James Thomas (Covert Affairs) as Donnie.

Additionally, Marisa Ramirez (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) stars as Abby's partner Lina Flores, Daniel Kash (The Dresden Files) is her boss Lieutenant Papadol, Andrew Walker (Maybe It's Me) plays Richie's partner Brody, Mayko Nguyen (Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy) is Abby's neighbour Mackie Phan and Chris Johnson (The Vampire Diaries) appears as Danny Mitchell, a lawyer and old friend of Abby's.

Nancy Miller (Saving Grace, Any Day Now) is executive producer of Against the Wall from Universal Cable Productions, with writer/creator Annie Brunner (Saving Grace, Huff) serving as supervising producer.
