Hightown it takes place on the iconic Cape Cod, and shows a woman’s journey towards sobriety amid the unfolding of a murder investigation. Jackie Quiñones (Monica Raymund), a party agent for the National Marine Fisheries Service, sees her life change when she finds a body on the beach, victim of the opium epidemic on Cape Cod.
As a result of this trauma, Jackie takes the first steps towards becoming sober – while convincing herself that it is she who needs to solve the murder. However, in disagreement with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale), an uncompromising but effective member of the Cape Cod Narcotics Unit, Jackie begins to circle. And she is not alone. Ray also gets out of control, getting lost in the middle of the investigation. Everyone’s lives, connected to this murderer, collide, reminding us how complicated – and deadly – our addictions can be.
The actors complete the cast Riley Voelkel, Shane Harper, Amaury Nolasco, Atkins Estimond and Dohn Norwood.
There will be 8 episodes for the first year of Hightown.
