Starz Announces Premiere Date for New Drama 'Hightown' Starring Monica Raymund

Starz has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Hightown starring Monica Raymund (Chicago Fire).

The 8-episode first season will premiere on Sunday, May 17 at 8/7c.

Set on Cape Cod, the drama follows Jackie Quiñones (Raymund), a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent whose free-wheeling life is thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach - another casualty of Cape Cod's opioid epidemic. As a result of this trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward becoming sober - until she becomes convinced that it's up to her to solve the murder. Her new mission puts her at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo, an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, causing both of them to spiral as they lose themselves in the investigation.

In addition to Raymund, the drama stars James Badge Dale, Riley Voelkel, Shane Harper, Amaury Nolasco, Atkins Estimond and Dohn Norwood.

Rebecca Cutter created the drama. She executive produces with Gary Lennon, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed and director Rachel Morrison. Jerry Bruckheimer Television produces.
