How does an L.A. crime drama all come together? And how do they make it seem so real?
Showbiz Tonight host A.J. Hammer got to go behind the scenes of TNT’s “Major Crimes” and found out that the process is thoroughly researched and planned – all down to the very last detail. The actors get advice from current and former L.A.P.D - sometimes even shadowing them for a day to see how it is done.
The show's star, Mary McDonnell - who plays the head of Major Crimes, Captain Sharon Raydnor - told us she has carefully studied how it all works and even has the help of a person you may recognize to help keep the show as authentic as possible.
Watch the entire behind-the-scenes look on Showbiz Tonight only on HLN at 11 pm ET/PT.
