CARTER is a one-hour, light procedural that follows the adventures of HARLEY CARTER, a former TV detective who has officially left Hollywood to solve crimes in his hometown. Mixing his natural abilities as a detective with his slightly overrated abilities as an actor, Harley continues to solve unorthodox crimes in his unorthodox way.
In season one, Harley solved his mother’s murder and is now fully embracing the fact that he is no longer just playing a detective on TV. He’s the real deal with a P.I. license, and with his best friends Dave Leigh (Kristian Bruun) and no-nonsense police veteran Sam Shaw (Sydney Poitier Heartsong), Harley finds himself facing a whole new crop of quirky mysteries. Life would be pretty good for Harley if there wasn’t a new chief of police in Bishop: Joyce Warwick Boyle (Lyriq Bent), an NYPD transplant with a mysterious past and an interest in Sam.
