The Closer is a drama/crime TV series created by James Duff, that ran from 2005 to 2012 (7 seasons). The show follows the life of Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick), a strong and quirky woman who leads an elite LAPD crime unit. Brenda is a closer : she persuades suspects to confess, and solves cases. The Closer has a spin-off series called Major Crimes.
[Leaving The Closer] was something that I struggled with for many, many months – almost a year really – before I made the tough decision to leave. […] It just felt like time, mostly for me as an artist, time for me to do something else. […] it was a hard decision because you’re putting so many other people out of work and there was just a lot of factors that go into making that kind of decision.
