Tv Season Info

"Hightown" follows one woman's journey to sobriety, overshadowed by a murder. Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying townie, discovers a body on the beach, and becomes convinced it's up to her to solve the case. She's immediately at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo, an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit. As their lives crash together, we're reminded how complicated -- and deadly -- our addictions can be.

Hightown grabs you from the very first scene, and the introduction of Raymund's free-wheeling, booze-addled, and coke-addicted Jackie seals the deal.

"Hightown" delivers trashy thrills within a very somber, serious setting.

Hightown is a crime series that is quite effective, but it thinks it's more complex and profound than it really is. [Full Review in Spanish]
