TV Series (2005-2012). She’s Tough. She’s Quirky. She’s Brilliant. She’s THE CLOSER. In this riveting hit drama series, CIA-trained detective Brenda Johnson, played by Kyra Sedgwick, plunges headfirst into unfamiliar territory when she’s transferred from Atlanta to the Los Angeles Police Department. Owing to her world-class interrogation and investigative skills, Brenda has been chosen to lead the LAPD’s Priority Homicide Division, a special unit that handles delicate, high-profile murder cases. Unfortunately, the hard-nosed Southern lady’s eccentric, tough-as-nails personality immediately rubs her new colleagues the wrong way in this male-dominated department. Resenting her quick ascent to the position of Deputy Police Chief, the unit’s veteran cops chafe at Brenda’s rigid management techniques and the Southern twang in which she delivers a syrupy sweet, yet decisively assertive, "Thank you" after dishing out orders.

Despite lack of popularity, Brenda was chosen to lead this exclusive team because of her expert interrogation skills, and she continually proves to her critics that she’s the perfect woman for the job. Brenda’s keen talent for delving into her subjects’ secrets and drawing confessions from them stems from profound understanding of her own neuroses and bizarre character flaws. In other words, she’s the ultimate closer. Struggling to overcome past demons and gain the acceptance of colleagues, Brenda throws herself completely into work, doing whatever it takes to reveal the truth behind each and every one of her cases. Although Brenda sometimes receives support from her boss, Assistant Police Chief Will Pope, she generally must fend for herself in this new hostile work environment. When the stress becomes too much to bear, she slips back into her old habit of gorging on doughnuts, chocolate bars and other sugary snacks stashed away in her desk drawers. Though she occasionally attempts to revive her dwindling personal life, Brenda typically places her career above all else.
