Starz has a habit of developing great content. At least we think so. They aren’t afraid to push the envelope, which makes me love them even more.
The channel has found a hit in Hightown – which follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, but you know that is overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation. Cause of course it is.
Only it’s not a corny show – it’s amazing and part of that is because of the amazing cast.
Monica Raymund plays Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, who has her life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach – another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. To deal with the trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward sobriety, until she becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the murder. James Badge Dale also stars along with Riley Voelkel, Shane Harper, Amaury Nolasco and Atkins Estimond.
The show has been renewed for a second season.
