WGN America unveiled two new originals, exhibiting the full spectrum of
the beloved detective procedural genre: lighthearted detective comedy Carter, starring Jerry O'Connell (Mistresses, Sliders, Crossing Jordan), Sydney Poitier Heartsong (Chicago P.D.) and Kristian Bruun (Orphan Black), and crime drama Gone, starring Chris Noth (Sex and the City, Law & Order, The Good Wife), Leven Ramblin (The Hunger Games) and Danny Pino (CSI: Miami). Carter
is a sharp, 10-episode series that revolves around Harley Mackay
(O'Connell), an actor playing a detective on a hit television show until
he is forced to retreat to his sleepy hometown after an embarrassing
public meltdown in Hollywood. Now that he's back, he taps into his
acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with his
two best friends, Sam Shaw (Heartsong) and Dave Leigh (Bruun). Carter will make its debut on WGN America on Tuesday, August 7.
