TV show description:
Offbeat Detective Charlie Crews (Damian Lewis) is convicted of a triple murder and serves 12 years in jail. DNA evidence finally exonerates him thanks to the efforts of his close friend, attorney Constance Griffiths (Brooke Langton).
While in jail, Crews loses his wife, his job, and sometimes his grip on reality but also ends up embracing the Zen philosophy. After suing the LAPD, he’s reinstated to the force and wins a substantial settlement. He’s partnered with unpopular Detective Dani Reese (Sarah Shahi). Lieutenant Karen Davis (Robin Weigert) questions Crews’ unconventional tactics and blackmails Dani into supplying her with reasons to fire him. Living above Crew’s garage is his friend Ted Earley (Adam Arkin), a former CEO he befriended in jail.
