"Now looking at it with a little distance, playing Harlee strengthened me and helped me grow into a more self-assured woman. It's crazy how some parts permeate your soul and change you forever and for that I am grateful. We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption," Lopez continued. "The way only Harlee could have done it—the hard way, the road less traveled. I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!"

The series follows Harlee Santos (Lopez) a single mother and police detective. Liotta stars as Lt. Matt Wozniak, who often leads his team outside the parameters of law and order. Drea de Matteo, Dayo Okeniyi, Vincent Laresca, Hampton Fluker and Sarah Jeffery also star. Nick Wechsler of Revenge is a recurring guest star.

Lopez serves as an executive producer alongside showrunner Jack OrmanElaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina, Ryan Seacrest and Nina Wass.

"We are so grateful for all the hard work and dedication of Jack Orman and his incredible producers as well as the entire cast and crew."
