New Summer Programming on Bravo Includes:MURDER IN THE FIRST (Monday, June 8 at 10 p.m. ET – Season 2 Premiere)
In the second season of MURDER IN THE FIRST, Terry English and Hildy Mulligan investigate a series of murders that could rip San Francisco apart and shake the police force at its core. Caught in the crosshairs during one of the most shocking crimes in the city’s history, Mulligan, English, and the men and women of 850 Bryant Street find themselves trapped in a crumbling system where the lines are blurred between friends and enemies, loyalty and corruption, legal and illegal, and good and evil, as a threat from outside is matched by a threat from within.
Joining the cast for Season 2 are A.J. Buckley (JUSTIFIED), Emmanuelle Chriqui (ENTOURAGE), Laila Robins (HOMELAND), Mo McRae (Wild), Mateus Ward (HOSTAGES), and John Cothran (EASTBOUND & DOWN).
Season 1 of MURDER IN THE FIRST is now available for streaming on CraveTV™.
COMPLICATIONS (Thursday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET – Series Premiere)
COMPLICATIONS centers on a disillusioned suburban doctor who, while still dealing with the emotional effects of his daughter’s death, unexpectedly becomes a vigilante hero when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life. When Dr. John Ellison (Jason O’Mara) learns the boy is still marked for death, he’s compelled to save him at any cost. Through this journey, he must compromise his morals, often doing the wrong thing for all the right reasons.
SUITS (Wednesday, June 24 at 9 p.m. ET – Season 5 Premiere)
In the Season 5 premiere of SUITS, Pearson Specter Litt has scored a hard-fought victory, but the fight has left the firm shaken. Although she avoided jail time, Donna (Sarah Rafferty, What if God Were The Sun?) has left Harvey (Gabriel Macht, Love & Other Drugs), after more than a decade of working together, and now works for his long-time rival Louis (Rick Hoffman, SAMANTHA WHO). And while Jessica (Gina Torres, FIREFLY) readjusts to being single, Mike (Patrick J. Adams, ROSEMARY’S BABY) and Rachel (Meghan Markle, Horrible Bosses) are giddy after his marriage proposal.
PROOF (Wednesday, June 24 at 10 p.m. ET – Series Premiere)
Starring Jennifer Beals, Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket), David Sutcliffe (CRACKED), and Joe Morton (SCANDAL), this all-new series centres on a doctor’s journey toward answering the question as to whether or not there is life after death. Beals stars as Dr. Carolyn Tyler, a brilliant surgeon suffering from the recent loss of her teenaged son, the breakup of her marriage, and a growing estrangement from her daughter. Tyler is persuaded by Ivan Turing (Modine), a cancer-stricken tech inventor and billionaire, to investigate cases of reincarnation, near-death experiences, hauntings, and other phenomena, all of it in the search for evidence that death is not the end.
PROOF also stars Callum Blue (SMALLVILLE), Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class), Annie Thurman (DARK SKIES), and newcomer Caroline Rose Kaplan.
GRACELAND (Thursday, June 25 at 10 p.m. ET – Season 3 Premiere)
GRACELAND follows the high-stakes investigative lives of six undercover federal agents who live together in a government-seized beach house dubbed Graceland. The FBI, DEA and ICE agents, whose lies are their lives, struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy while living and working together. Season 3 resumes after an attack on Mike (Aaron Tveit, Les Misérables) that left his fate in the balance at the end of Season 2. Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, RESCUE ME) gets coerced into a high-risk operation, while his pregnant counterpart Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito, Death Proof) is on a mission to find the person who nearly killed her. Joe 'Johnny' Tuturro (Manny Montana, THE FOLLOWING), Dale Jakes (Brandon Jay McLaren, FALLING SKIES), and Paige (Serinda Swan, BREAKOUT KINGS) each seek normalcy as federal agents with the FBI, DEA, and ICE living in an undercover world of their own.
Seasons 1 and 2 of GRACELAND are set to launch on CraveTV™, Friday, May 29.
