Acclaimed actress Edie Falco (Oz, The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie) stars as Abigail "Tommy" Thomas, a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female chief of police for Los Angeles.
Tommy steps into her new job surrounded by her predecessor's staff, including Chief of Staff Donn Cooper (Russell G. Jones), a savvy cop with good instincts and the ability to be discreet; Blake Sullivan (Adelaide Clemens), the polished and confident press secretary who is eager to earn Tommy's trust; and Ken Rosey (Michael Chernus), an idealistic speechwriter and former attorney.
Tommy also hires Abner Diaz (Vladimir Caamaño), a fellow street-smart New York transplant, as part of her personal security team.
The person responsible for hiring Tommy is Mayor Buddy Gray (Thomas Sadoski), a charismatic politician whose goals and ambitions don't always align with Tommy's. Buddy relies on the political instincts of his deputy mayor, Doug Dudik (Joseph Lyle Taylor), a slick operative with questionable morals who is wary of Tommy's growing influence.
Now that Tommy is in L.A., she has a second chance at a relationship with her adult daughter, Kate Jones (Olivia Lucy Phillip), who still faults her mother for choosing career over family many years ago.
Possessing a New Yorker's gift for being tough and sarcastic while remaining likable, Tommy has the conviction needed to succeed as the first woman to lead the LAPD in its fight to keep citizens safe and crime at bay in the City of Angels.
