STARZPLAY UK Releases Trailer & Sets May Premiere Date For Drug Mystery Drama ‘Hightown’ Starring Monica Raymund
STARZPLAY UK has released a trailer for ‘Hightown‘, a new drama starring ‘Chicago Fire’s Monica Raymund as it follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, intertwined with an unfolding murder investigation.
Set on Cape Cod, the series stars Raymund as Jackie Quinones, a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, who has her free-wheeling life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach – another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. As a result of this trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward becoming sober – until she becomes convinced that it’s up to her to solve the murder.
Now at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale – ’24’, ‘The Pacific’), an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, Jackie starts to spiral. And she’s not alone. Ray, too, spins out of control; losing himself in the investigation. The lives of everyone connected to this murder crash and converge, reminding us just how complicated… and deadly… our addictions can be.
Additional cast includes Riley Voelkel (‘The Originals’), Shane Harper (‘Good Luck Charlie’), Amaury Nolasco (‘Prison Break’), Atkins Estimond (‘Lodge 49’) and Dohn Norwood (‘Mindhunter’).
The series was created by writer Rebecca Cutter, who previously worked on ‘The Mentalist’ and ‘Gotham’. Cutter exec produces alongside Gary Lennon, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed.
‘Hightown‘ Season 1 premieres Sunday, 17th May 2020 on STARZPLAY UK. If you’re in the US, you can catch the drama, also May 17, on STARZ.
