Starz today debuted the Hightown trailer, which gives you a first look at the upcoming spring premiere. Hightown is set in beautiful but bleak Cape Cod and follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation.
Jackie Quiñones (Monica Raymund, Chicago Fire, The Good Wife), a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, has her free-wheeling life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach — another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. To deal with the trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward sobriety — until she becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the murder.
Now at odds with sergeant Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale, Only the Brave), an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, Jackie starts to spiral. And she’s not alone – Ray himself crosses more lines than he can count in the name of the investigation. The two of them, along with everyone else connected to the murder, all circle each other, and as their lives crash together, we’re reminded just how complicated – and deadly – our addictions can be.
Riley Voelkel (Roswell, New Mexico, The Originals), Shane Harper (Code Black, Happyland), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break, Deception) and Atkins Estimond (The Resident, Lodge 49) also star.
Hightown is created and executive produced by Rebecca Cutter with Gary Lennon (Power, Euphoria) executive producing with Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Carribbean movie franchise, Top Gun: Maverick), Jonathan Littman (Lucifer, CSI Franchise) and KristieAnne Reed (CSI: Cyber, Lucifer) from Jerry Bruckheimer TV. Oscar-nominated director Rachel Morrison (Black Panther, Fruitvale Station) directed the first two episodes of the series.
