CrackedThe other side of crime
Starring David Sutcliffe (Private Practice, Gilmore Girls) and Brooke Nevin (Chicago Fire), and created by Tracey Forbes (Flashpoint)
Every day when we walk down the street, we encounter people who have lost their moorings. Sometimes they frighten us, sometimes they amuse us, but most of the time we ignore them. Then something snaps, and emotional distress becomes emotional crisis: a bizarre assault, a ritualized murder, a suicide attempt...
One of these cops is Detective-Sergeant Aidan Black, a brilliant homicide inspector who begins to worry his bosses when he's involved in two fatal shootings in the line of duty. Due to his own battle with mental illness, he's transferred to the Psych Crimes Unit, where cops and psychiatrists join forces to prevent and solve crimes involving unbalanced individuals. Aidan is partnered with Dr. Daniella Ridley, the head of the unit, who knows that when psychosis spills over into crime, police and psychiatric professionals who work separately are soon out of their depth.
Aidan and Daniella prove to be a congenial team. It's not just the combination of Aidan's police work and Daniella's psychiatric skills. Aidan's sharpened empathy can put him inside the mindset of a delusional psychotic, while Daniella's methodical attention to detail helps her pick up on clues that others miss. They know they'll be getting deep inside some very troubled minds – but just how far will they go?
