"Saving Grace" is a TNT drama series starring Academy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter ("The Piano"), who takes on the role of a cynical police detective facing a personal crisis of divine proportions.

Making her television series debut, Hunter stars as Grace Hanadarko, a tormented, fast-living Oklahoma City police detective who, despite being at the top of her field, takes self-destruction to new heights. After seeing tremendous tragedy in her life, both professionally and personally, Grace lives life hard and fast. She drinks too much, sleeps with the wrong men and defies authority on "Saving Grace." Grace has a tender side with her 22 nieces and nephews, but that is a side that most of the world doesn't get to see. It all catches up with her one night on "Saving Grace" when, as she's driving too fast after too many drinks, she hits a man who is walking along the road. In an uncharacteristic moment, Grace asks for help, and she gets it — in the form an unconventional angel named Earl (Leon Rippy, Deadwood). Earl tells Grace that she is in trouble and running out of chances, but he wants to help lead her back to the right path. The journey, for both of them on TNT's "Saving Grace" TV show will not be an easy one.

"Saving Grace" creator Nancy Miller says of Hunter, "Holly can break your heart and make you laugh in the same moment. She's astonishing. Grace is a complex character, deeply troubled but searching for the good, with a heart full of love and pain, and a surprising tenderness when you least expect it."

In addition to Rippy, the "Saving Grace" cast also includes Kenneth Johnson ("The Shield") as Grace's partner; Gregory Norman Cruz ("Criminal Minds") as detective Bobby Stillwater; Bailey Chase ("Las Vegas") as detective Butch Ada; Bokeem Woodbine ("The Big Hit") as a death row inmate who figures into Grace's struggle and Laura San Giacomo ("Just Shoot Me") as the criminalist who, despite having strong religious beliefs, is the only one in Grace's life who does not judge her.
