Kyra's picks start with the gripping series premiere, in which her character arrives in Los Angeles to a less-than-hearty welcome, and follow Brenda as she defends her squad from devastating budget cuts, survives a serial killer's attack, copes with reckless team members and deals with personal issues from her engagement to parenting her niece. Guest stars include Daniel Baldwin (Homicide: Life on the Street), Mary McDonnell (Battlestar Galactica), Xander Berkeley (24) and Kyra's real-life daughter, Sosie Bacon, in an episode directed by husband Kevin Bacon. Get closer with Kyra through her insider's view, and catch her top picks of The Closer.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPilot||When Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson arrives in Los Angeles from Atlanta, Georgia, she immediately finds herself thrust into a very different way of life. She struggles to get over her past problems while dealing with co-workers who resent the fact that she leapfrogged over many veteran cops to the elevated position of deputy police chief. Her quirky personality and hard-nosed approach to her job immediately irritate her colleagues, as does the fact that she is a tough-minded Southern woman in a department dominated by men. Although focused on her career, she's also trying (somewhat unsuccessfully) to overcome her love of doughnuts, chocolate bars and other snacks and to reignite a personal life that has fallen by the wayside.||52:55||$0.99||View in iTunes|

To keep Brenda busy, Pope assigns her to a television reporter doing a story on the LAPD. While Brenda and Gabriel are escorting the journalist, their car is attacked with a barrage of gunfire, leaving the reporter dead. Because she is a witness and off active duty, she is not able to participate in the investigation ... at least not overtly.

Complicating matters, a newspaper story by Ricardo Ramos (recurring guest star STEPHEN MARTINES) paints an extremely unflattering picture of Priority Homicide, a public relations nightmare that's going to require some fancy footwork by Pope, Taylor and Brenda to set right.||43:10||$0.99||View in iTunes|
