In Tommy, Emmy award-winner Edie Falco (The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie) stars as Abigail “Tommy” Thomas, a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female chief of police for Los Angeles.
Stepping into her new job surrounded by her predecessor's staff, Tommy must use her unflinching honesty and hardball tactics to keep social, political and national security issues from hindering effective law control in her new home town.
On Tommy’s team are Chief of Staff Donn Cooper (Russell G. Jones), a savvy cop with good instincts and the ability to be discreet; Ken Rosey (Michael Chernus), an idealistic speechwriter and former attorney; Abner Diaz (Vladimir Caamaño), a fellow street-smart New York cop, who's part of her personal security team, and Blake Sullivan, played by Brisbane-born actress Adelaide Clemens, a polished and confident press secretary who is eager to earn Tommy’s trust.
Tommy also stars Thomas Sadoski (The Newsroom, Life In Pieces) as the guy responsible for hiring Tommy, Mayor Buddy Gray. Buddy relies on the political instincts of his deputy mayor, Doug Dudik (Joseph Lyle Taylor), a slick operative with questionable morals who is wary of Tommy’s growing influence.
Now that Tommy is in L.A., she has a second chance at a relationship with her adult daughter, Kate Jones (Olivia Lucy Phillip), who still faults her mother for choosing career over family many years ago.
Equal parts political, procedural and family drama, Tommy comes from Paul Attanasio, the creator of Bull and Homicide: Life On The Street. Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Tom Szentgyorgyi, Christine Moore and Kate Dennis (pilot only) also serve as executive producers alongside Attanasio.
Tommy premieres 8.30 Wednesday, 3 June on 10, or catch up on 10 play
