Despite consistently decent ratings, the popular TNT series THE CLOSER enters its final season tonight. Created by JAMES DUFF, the show follows a Los Angeles crime division headed by Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, a Georgia transplant whose genteel demeanor belies her tough, unconventional approach to catching the bad guys. Emmy Award-winning actress KYRA SEDGWICK heads the cast that also includes J.K. SIMMONS, JON TENNEY, COREY REYNOLDS, ROBERT GOSSETT, G.W. BAILEY and TONY DENISON.
We spoke with SEDGWICK about the show and its reliably loyal fan base and she admitted to liking the genuine affection people have shown the series over the course of the last seven years. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
