CARTER SEASON 02
Carter is a one-hour, light procedural drama that follows the adventures of Harley Carter, an actor who went to Hollywood and became a big TV star. As the star of the number-one detective show in America, Harley has all the trappings of fame and success but his years in Hollywood have worn him down. An endless blur of parties, premieres and 16-hour workdays have left him with only vague memories of who he used to be – and he likes and misses the old Harley. Plus, his impetuous marriage to supermodel Winter Wood is falling apart – in part as she’s sleeping with one of Harley’s friends and co-stars and it’s this that leads Harley to an ill-advised and humiliating red carpet fistfight over the affair. Harley walks away from it all, despite the two years left on his contract, and heads to his northern home to re-evaluate his life. Back in Bishop, it’s difficult for Harley to get people to see past his TV character and take him seriously, including his two best friends Sam Shaw (Sydney Poitier Heartsong) and Dave Leigh (Kristian Bruun) who think he might be having a midlife crisis. The mayor sees the famous TV detective as a potential tourist attraction for the town while the police chief wants him nowhere near a crime scene. His housekeepers/odd parental units love him dearly, but secretly think he’s a spoiled baby. Burnt out on Hollywood, Harley has turned a corner in his life and wants to prove that he’s more than a pretty face. It’s time for him to show the world that he doesn’t just play a detective on TV, but can solve real crimes … including the mystery of his mother’s disappearance 25 years ago. Every episode will be self-contained and have a mystery crime attached to it that is solved within the hour. Cases will be solved by a combination of Harley and his best friends, Sam and Dave, plus his sidekick junior agent, Vijay Gill.
