TNT is putting Brenda Johnson back on the case in June.
The cable network, along with sister station TBS, has announced premiere dates for its crime drama "The Closer" and several other series, stretching from early June into August.
"The Closer," which stars Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick as Brenda Johnson and is among the highest-rated series on cable, begins its third season at 9 p.m. ET Monday, June 18. It will be followed by a new drama, "Heartland," at 10 p.m. That series stars Treat Williams ("Everwood") as an organ-transplant surgeon and Kari Matchett ("24," "Invasion") as his ex-wife, a transplant coordinator.
A month later, TNT will roll out "Saving Grace," which stars Holly Hunter as an Oklahoma City detective who, after hitting bottom, encounters an angel (Leon Rippy, "Deadwood") who wants to help her put her life back together. The series will air at 10 p.m. Wednesdays starting July 18.
The network caps its summer with "The Company," a six-hour miniseries about the CIA during the Cold War. It stars Michael Keaton, Chris O'Donnell and Alfred Molina and will air in two-hour installments over three consecutive Sundays starting Aug. 5.
TBS, meanwhile, will kick off its summer with the family comedy "Tyler Perry's House of Payne" on Wednesday, June 6. The show, about multiple generations of a family living under the same roof, comes from "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" creator Perry, who has committed to making 100 episodes of the show. Following its debut on TBS, it will go into syndication in 2008.
TBS will also premiere "The Bill Engvall Show," starring the "Blue Collar Comedy" veteran and Nancy Travis, on Tuesday, July 17, and a new season of "My Boys" on Monday, July 30.
