In the series Lopez plays Harlee Santos, a single mom and clever detective at the center of a tight-knit crew of Brooklyn detectives, led by Lt. Matt Wozniak, played by Ray Liotta. Wozniak often leads the team to step outside the letter of the law to protect their precinct and team members.
There’s plenty of action to keep viewers on edge throughout the series (Season 2 begins March 5th on NBC). Harlee navigates her fractured relationship with Wozniak, as she tries to conceal a deep secret: she killed her daughter’s father. The crew is under scrutiny from the FBI as well as from Internal Affairs, in the form of a gregarious detective, Verco (Dov Davidoff). And there’s action on the political front: a former member of their crew, Julia Ayres (Anna Gunn) decides to run for mayor. Because of Ayres’ connections, Harlee and Wozniak find themselves confronting the Mafia.
The after-party was held at Tutto Il Giorno in Tribeca
