What’s the secret behind the most successful series in the history of basic cable? Chocolate. Well, that and a meticulously researched plotline, consulted on by the likes of former Los Angeles County district attorney Gil Garcetti, and a powerhouse of a leading lady, Kyra Sedgwick. Sedgwick stars as Los Angeles Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson, a beautiful lady who means business. Currently in its sixth season, The Closer
is reportedly averaging 7.1 million viewers per week, making it one of the top rated programs in the history of basic cable. Better yet for local audiences, The Closer
is based on L.A. crime stories, using the LAPD’s fictional “Major Crimes Unit” to portray the mix of law enforcement and L.A. culture. Finishing up its sixth season this week, with the seventh on the way in December, Patt takes her show to the set of The Closer
to talk dramatized crime stories, and of course chocolate.
