Murder in the First – Official Information

Fugitives determined to escape punishment in the great state of Texas should think twice. There’s a brave force of law enforcement officers known as the US Marshal Service who will be right on their tail no matter where they go. Set in San Francisco, Murder in the First will follow a single case across an entire season.

The series follows homicide detectives Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) as they investigate two seemingly unrelated murders. The mystery deepens, however, when they find both murders have a common denominator in Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Tom Felton).

Terry and Hildy’s fellow detectives in their squad include SFPD homicide inspector David Molk (Raphael Sbarge), a thoughtful philosopher-cop and frequent class clown, and his tough-as-nails partner inspector Edgar Navarro (Lombardo Boyar). The ambitious and no-nonsense Lt. Jim Koto (Ian Anthony Dale) serves as the squad’s supervisor.

Supporting Blunt in his endeavors are Bill Wilkerson (Steven Weber), his long-time friend, driver and pilot, and Ivana West (Bess Rous), the company’s brilliant chief technology officer. Blunt’s legal team includes David Hertzberg (Richard Schiff), his gruff lawyer and trusted confidant, and Warren Daniels James (Cromwell), a legendary criminal attorney brought in to assist when suspicion turns to Blunt.

Facing them in the courtroom will be the remarkably brilliant District Attorney Sonia Perez (Nicole Ari Parker) and pit-bull Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti (Currie Graham).

Murder in the First also takes viewers into Terry and Hildy’s home lives. Hildy is a single mom with an inquisitive daughter (Mimi Kirkland). Terry, meanwhile, is struggling to take care of his terminally ill wife, Emily, played by guest star Anne-Marie Johnson (JAG, In the Heat of the Night).
