TV show description:
This crime drama has a unique twist in that it doesn’t focus on who committed a crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place. As the mystery unfolds, winding between revealing flashbacks and present time, viewers navigate the twisted and complicated maze of each murder, solving the puzzle alongside the detectives, piecing together more of the mysterious connections that drove the killer to commit murder.

When a murder is committed, Detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer.

Sexy and feisty, Angie is a thirty-something single mom from the wrong side of the tracks who proves that appearances can be deceiving. Oscar is intelligent, thoughtful, methodical and confident. He comes from a wealthy family and turned his back on an expensive Harvard Divinity School education to join the police force (a change of heart from his initial choice of joining the priesthood).

Others on the homicide team are: Doctor Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly), a medical examiner with a quirky sense of humor that belies the grimness of her daily job. Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom (Roger Cross), the Squad Room Supervisor who was sidelined from the streets a few years earlier by a bullet. Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny), a young eager beaver detective and newlywed who’s eager to learn and is fascinated about the often grisly procedures.

Angie doesn’t suffer fools or authority figures lightly. At home, Angie only wants the best for her teenage son, Manny (Cameron Bright), who is one of the few things in life that she feels she did right. But as far as Manny’s concerned, being the son of a cop is not the easiest gig in the world.

Motive is an Unique and GREAT TV Series. Cathy and I wished it would have been moved to a Fall and Winter Series. We anticipated it every year since the very first episode aired. Please keep it going!

I vote for Motive to be renewed haven’t missed an episode.


Randall May 8, 2015 at 6:29 am

Motive is so refreshing – it must stay on air.


Donna from Boston area May 2, 2015 at 6:15 pm

I enjoyed this series or smart done and think it should return. It’s quirky charm is needed to be seen again.


Joe May 8, 2015 at 6:27 am

AMEN, Donna from Boston. I watch nearly all crime procedurals (here in USA), and since Cold Case went off the air, this is the best there is…I hate that it’s so few and far between airings. I hope ABC keeps it – it should be right up there with Scandal and HTGAWM on the ratings even though it’s not Shonda Rimes. Angie Flynn is an awesome character, and the format is beautiful….I really really like this show.

A wonderful show with a rare premise that was certainly different. Please renew.


Ann April 23, 2015 at 8:33 pm

What is going on with this series? When is it coming back!!!!


J.P. Osterman April 13, 2015 at 6:14 pm

Motive should be renewed. I can’t wait for the next episode.


Janet Garofano April 4, 2015 at 5:02 pm

PLEASE show Motive in the US! It is a quality show, with excellent acting, unlike a lot of other shows still on air.


Catherine Ferguson April 4, 2015 at 6:19 pm

I adore the show. It is truly unique. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to cancel it.


Liz Stephenson March 29, 2015 at 12:16 am

Tonya March 23, 2015 at 5:53 pm

Please don’t cancel Motive. I think it is a cool show and different from all the other crime drmas.


Linda March 8, 2015 at 11:06 pm
