HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 7/11/2010 – “He doesn’t mean to be annoying, but he just is…all the time,” says The Glades star Matt Passmore who plays the role of homicide detective Jim Longworth. “Because he’s just right. He really likes being right. I think he looks at everyone else with pity, as wouldn’t you like to be as right as me? But, you’re not.”
“My goal was to write a murder mystery that has solid characters,” says The Glades executive producer Clifton Campbell. “I’m a native of Florida and know there are a lot of weird crimes here. I think it’s the perfect location for a guy like this.”
“I play Callie,” says The Glades star Kiele Sanchez. “At first my character can’t stand him, but there’s a little sexual tension there.” Callie is working as a nurse and caring for her 12-year-old son. She’s amused and annoyed by Longworth’s pursuit of her.
“They put this alligator on my table,” says The Glades star Carolos Gomez who plays the role of Carlos Sanchez. “I’m the medical examiner on the show and I kind of freak out. I’m not going to autopsy an alligator.”
The A&E dramatic series The Glades follows Jim Longworth, a brilliant yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who transfers to Florida after being exiled from the department. He learns this place outside the Everglades isn’t quite so idyllic, as he finds people keep turning up murdered. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives to wear a badge.
The Glades is a character-driven police procedural set in the fictional town of Palm Glade, Florida. It stars Australian actor Matt Passmore (McLeod’s Daughters, Underbelly), Kiele Sanchez (Lost, Samantha Who?), Carlos Gómez (Shark, Sleeper Cell) and Michelle Hurd (Law & Order SVU, Gossip Girl). The Glades is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producer is Clifton Campbell (White Collar, Profiler, 21 Jump Street) for Innuendo Productions and Gary Randall (Saving Grace) for Grand Productions, Inc. The series creator is Clifton Campbell.
