SAVING GRACE (article first published : 2008-03-21)

Starting on April 15 at 21h30, M-Net offers a new series, Saving Grace.

Oscar winner Holly Hunter plays Grace Hanadarko, an Oklahoma City police detective who has spiralled along a path of self-destruction. She is having an affair with her married partner, drinks too much and too often, never follows orders, and has a penchant for flying off the handle. One morning while driving drunk, she hits a pedestrian, killing him. Help arrives in the form of a tobacco-chewing angel named Earl and he promises to erase the event on one condition: she must redeem herself in the eyes of God.

The people impacting on Grace’s life includes Ham Dewey (played by Kenny Johnson) as Grace’s partner; detective Bobby Stillwater (Gregory Cruz); detective Butch Ada (Bailey Chase); Leon Cooley (Bokeem Woodbine), a death row inmate; and Rhetta Rodriguez (Laura San Giacomo) the criminalist who, despite having strong religious beliefs, is the only one in Grace’s life who does not judge her.
