Crossing Jordan Premieres on Vibe

VIBE – Weeknights from Monday 15 March, 7.30pm

“You be the killer, and I’ll be the victim, and we’ll figure out how this happened.” It’s business as usual for this dedicated, impulsive and abrasive medical examiner, every weeknight on Vibe.

Jill Hennessy (Law & Order) features at the heart of this intriguing dramatic series as Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh, a smart, sexy, and fearless medical examiner with a chequered past – and a penchant for going beyond the call of duty to investigate crimes.

After a professionally and personally difficult stint in Los Angeles, Jordan returns to her hometown of Boston and her former job with the Massachusetts State Coroner’s Office. There Jordan is reunited with her ex-cop father, Max (Ken Howard), whom she often turns to for investigative help. Together, they engage in some rather unusual role-playing that literally puts them in the heads of the killers and victims at the murder scene. Still haunted by the unsolved murder of Jordan’s mother, this tragic incident shapes her empathy with the voiceless victims she encounters as she channels her inner anger towards piecing together complex murder cases that have been hidden, shoved aside or conveniently forgotten.

On the job, Jordan is supported – at least most of the time – by her boss, Dr. Garret Macy (Miguel Ferrer). Other colleagues assisting her are forensic entomologist Dr. Mahesh “Bug” Vijayaraghavensatyanaryanamurthy (Ravi Kapoor), grief counsellor Lily Lebowski (Kathryn Hahn), and criminalist Dr. Nigel Townsend (Steve Valentine). Detective Woodrow “Woody” Hoyt (Jerry O’Connell) provides the much needed legwork to track down the perpetrators Jordan and her team investigate.
