Australian Television Premiere Series. Starts December 5, Sundays at 8.30pm
Following rave reviews in the US and starring Australia’s own Matt Passmore (Underbelly, McLeod’s Daughters), W channel delivers the red hot drama The Glades for summer.
Jim Longworth (Passmore) is an attractive, brilliant, yet hard-to-get-along-with homicide detective from Chicago who is forced into exile after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain’s wife. Using the payout he received from the Chicago PD, Longworth searches for the simple life and moves to the sleepy resort town of Palm Glade, Florida, joining the local bureau of the state police figuring it’ll be an easy piece of time. Longworth prefers to work his cases alone and sharing his theories with other detectives only serves to annoy him. But despite his cocky, annoying self-confidence, people put up with him because he’s too charming to ignore, and damned good at solving murders.
Also stars Kiele Sanchez as Callie Cargill, Carlos Gomez as Carlos Sanchez and Michelle Hurd as Colleen Manus.
*W is premiering The Glades commercial-free.
