Filed Under: Articles, Major Crimes • Posted on August 24th, 2015 by Sophie • No Comments »

TNT is expanding the fourth season of Major Crimes. The network has handed out a five episode back order to the Mary McDonnell fronted procedural, bringing the total number of episodes ordered for the show’s fourth season to twenty-three.

This is the largest episode order that Major Crimes has ever received and is on-par with the typical orders given to a series on one of the big five networks. The series has long been a top performer for TNT, with the show’s fourth season pulling in north of ten million viewers, close to the numbers for the network’s flagship drama Rizzoli & Isles.

The five episode pick up is also noteworthy as its comes as questions have been lingering about the show’s future, especially as TNT has typically renewed the series by this stage in previous years. That said, given the lucrative international sales and the show’s strong ratings, Major Crimes is widely expected to be renewed for a fifth season before too long.

Filed Under: Major Crimes • Posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Sophie • No Comments »

Television’s favorite squad of detectives will be back on the case this summer when TNT’s hit drama Major Crimes returns for its fourth season. One of basic cable’s Top 10 series, Oscar® and Emmy® nominee Mary McDonnell heads the extraordinary ensemble cast that includes G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin and Jonathan Del Arco, along with Robert Gossett. Major Crimes is set to launch its fourth season on Monday, June 8, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). It will be followed by the return of TNT’s hit crime-drama Murder in the First.
In 2014, Major Crimes ranked as one of basic cable’s Top 10 series for the third consecutive year. The series averaged more than 8.2 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery in its third season, with 2.5 million adults 18-49 and 1.9 million adults 25-54, all on par with the prior season’s performance. Overall, the show reached an average of 11.6 million viewers per episode across TNT’s linear, VOD, online and mobile platforms.
Major Crimes focuses on how the American justice system approaches the art of the deals as law enforcement officers and prosecutors work together to score a conviction. In the series, McDonnell stars as Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor, who heads up a special squad within the LAPD that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. Her team of investigators includes G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza, Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Mike Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez, Kearran Giovanni as Detective Amy Sykes and Phillip P. Keene as tech expert Buzz Watson. Robert Gossett plays Assistant Chief Russell Taylor, Raydor’s boss, while Jonathan Del Arco plays Dr. Morales, the medical examiner. Graham Patrick Martin plays Rusty Beck, a formerly homeless teen who has been adopted by Raydor.
In addition to the main cast, Major Crimes features recurring appearances by Jon Tenney as Deputy Chief of the Special Operations Bureau Fritz Howard, Ransford Doherty as Coroner’s Investigator Kendall, Kathe Mazur as DDA Andrea Hobbs, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Lt. Chuck Cooper and Bill Brochtrup as Rusty’s therapist, Dr. Joe Bowman. Also set to return this season is guest star Tom Berenger as Jack Raydor, Capt. Raydor’s estranged husband.
This season on Major Crimes, the division will be called upon to investigate a complicated string of home burglaries, a case involving a dead body left in the trunk of a car that is wrecked during a high-speed chase and a gangland shooting case involving an 11-year-old witness. During his first drive-along as a Reserve Officer, Buzz Watson will be dragged into the latest Flynn and Provenza investigative debacle after a dead body in a bathtub threatens an extremely expensive wedding. And Sanchez will return to the Major Crimes unit, but struggle to rebuild relationships and trust with his fellow officers. Back at home, Sharon Raydor’s newly adopted son, Rusty, will discover a passion for journalism that tests his mother’s patience, and could threaten the prosecution of a confessed murderer.
Created by James Duff, Major Crimes is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. Duff, Greer Shephard & Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace, Adam Belanoff and Leo Geter serve as executive producers.

Oscar nominees Strathairn and McDonnell star in Cherry Orchard at People’s Light in Malvern
Filed Under: Mary, Projects • Posted on February 6th, 2015 by Sophie • No Comments »

SO, A COUPLE of Academy Award nominees are teaming up to do Anton Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard.” Big deal, right? You can’t swing a rolled-up Playbill in New York’s theater district without hitting some big-time movie or TV star taking a huge pay cut to hit the boards. (Paging Bradley “Elephant Man” Cooper!)

But when David Strathairn (nominated for “Good Night, and Good Luck”) and Mary McDonnell (“Dances With Wolves,” “Passion Fish”) hit the stage Feb. 11, they will be, according to Mapquest, exactly 114.72 miles southwest of Times Square, at People’s Light & Theatre Company, in Malvern.

That two such august performers agreed to spend most of the winter in Chester County is the result of stars (figuratively and literally) aligning, as well as patience, luck and timing.

There were “so many wonderful routes and pathways that kind of led to the alchemy of all this happening now,” offered Zak Berkman, PLTC’s producing director, who jokingly described himself as the project’s “midwife.”

Berkman and Abigail Adams, the company’s artistic director and CEO (she is also directing “The Cherry Orchard”), emphasized that their casting of the two top-shelf actors was not a publicity stunt.

“Getting well-known people would be irrelevant to us,” insisted Adams. “It’s these particular people that are really important. And that’s true of any guests we have here. We always hope it will be the beginning of a long-term relationship, and that their values are shared with our values.”

Finding Lubov

The People’s Light honchos wanted to work again with Strathairn – he did “Nathan the Wise,” in 2009, and “Sally’s Gone, She Left Her Name,” in 2000, at the theater – and with McDonnell, whom they’ve both known for many years. They’ve also had a longtime hankering to stage Chekhov’s classic piece about an aristocratic Russian woman, Lubov Andreyevna Ranevskaya, and her family trying to save their estate.

“It’s a play we’ve wanted to do for years, but I felt we did not have a Lubov, and I didn’t want to do it until we had the Lubov,” said Adams, referring to McDonnell’s character. “And Mary was, to me, the best possible choice. So, when that began to emerge as a possibility, there were more and more conversations.”

According to Adams and Berkman, the process began in Los Angeles in 2011, when they had dinner with McDonnell. Strathairn was their choice to play Leonid Andreyevich Gaev, Lubov’s brother. But things had to be put on hold until the actors’ schedules allowed them to put aside the required nine weeks.

“I keep joking, there were many hail Mary passes going along that got caught to make this possible,” said Berkman. “We tried to assemble this [last year]. It almost happened but crumbled apart.”

One major issue has been McDonnell’s “day job” as the star of TNT’s “Major Crimes,” on which she portrays Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor. But she promised Adams and Berkman last year that this winter would work for her.

Why Malvern?

It’s easy to assess the value to PLTC of having two stars of this caliber perform there. But to hear McDonnell and Strathairn tell it, they’re the ones reaping most of the benefits.

“Why come to Malvern?” asked Strathairn, putting the emphasis on the town name’s second syllable. “Why go to off-Broadway when you can come to Malvern? It’s a place where the development of new and reinvestigation of old dramatic pieces is done in a special way.

“Sure, the nuts and bolts of putting together a production are pretty much the same wherever you go, but it’s the whole aesthetic here that I respond to. To be able to come here is really kind of a privilege, and to be fit into a company that has [survived and thrived for 40 years] is a challenge.”

He added that, in his estimation, the quality of work done by People’s Light is “relatively even” with that of New York productions.

For McDonnell, who spent five years of her childhood living in nearby King of Prussia, PLTC was a perfect place to get back to live performing after 17 years in film and television.

“I’ve been out of [theater] for so long that [it’s a] privilege to step into a company that has synergy and history, support and an environment that is beautiful,” she said. “It doesn’t have the trappings of some of what might be burdensome in New York.

“So you come here and you’re immediately at work with people who trust each other, know each other and have a skill set that supports the exploration immediately. There’s none of that getting to know each other and figuring out who’s on top. The power stuff – it just doesn’t happen.

“So, for me it was like being given support instantly that I frankly needed to reenter the world of theater.”

Another plus, added Strathairn, is simply that Malvern is not New York, which means critical response isn’t really an issue.

“The community here is very forgiving, because this is their theater. They love this place,” he said.

“So, maybe the razor’s edge of criticism doesn’t come as sharply upon productions here. But because of that, there is an allowance here for exploration. It may not be as dangerous, the ice may not be as thin, but you may not be so susceptible to criticism that can make or break you.”
