Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson

Warner Home Video (WHV) brings the fourth season of the critically acclaimed series The Closer to DVD 3 March, 2010. Titled The Closer: The Complete Fourth Season, the release stars the multiple award–winning and gifted actress Kyra Sedgwick as one of television’s feistiest and most provocative police women. This DVD will showcase all 15 episodes from the series’ fourth year, as well as bonus material in a four-disc collection.
Golden Globe® winner and Emmy® nominee Kyra Sedgwick portrays Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, a CIA-trained detective who has been brought from Atlanta to Los Angeles to head up the Priority Homicide Division, a special unit of the LAPD that handles sensitive, high-profile murder cases. Despite her offbeat personality and tendency to step on people’s toes, Brenda’s tough-as-nails approach and track record prove her to be one of the country’s leading investigators. Brenda is tapped to lead the team because she is a world-class interrogator and when it comes to obtaining confessions, she is an expert “closer.” However, her quirky attitude and hard-nosed approach to her job sometimes rub her colleagues the wrong way, as does the fact that she is a tough-minded Southern woman in a department dominated by men.
On the fourth season of The Closer, murderers are not the only ones giving Brenda a hard time. An ambitious newspaper reporter interferes as he tries to get a story on the Priority Homicide Division, resulting in disaster for the squad. Although Brenda and her team chalk up a string of successes (including catching a child’s killer, a drive-by shooter and an arsonist who sets L.A.’s Griffith Park ablaze), the reporter’s unflattering tell-all marks the end of the PHD. But viewers shouldn’t ever count Brenda out. She brings her staff to the newly formed Major Crimes Division for assignments with expanded jurisdiction that extends to con artists, kidnappers, predators and, of course, killers. All of L.A.’s worst are going to meet L.A’s best.
The series also stars J.K. Simmons (Juno), Corey Reynolds (The Guardian), Robert Gossett (Passions), G.W. Bailey (The Jeff Foxworthy Show), Tony Denison (Prison Break), Michael Paul Chan (Arrested Development), Raymond Cruz (Training Day), Gina Ravera (ER), Phillip P. Keene (Home) and Jon Tenney (The Division).
“When a series earns major award nominations and wins for each season since its inception, you know you’ve got a rare and exceptional television program on your hands. That is consistently the case with The Closer. We feel privileged to be associated with this remarkable show,” said Caroline Skillen, WHV Non-Theatrical Marketing Manager. She added, “Kyra Sedgwick is dazzling in her role as Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. Her outstanding performance combined with the show’s powerful story lines and brilliant production is what makes this a real stand-out police drama, and we are pleased to offer it to consumers.”
