Motive is apparently not your typical crime drama. ABC’s just picked up the series for a 13-episode summer 2013 run and in doing so they describe the show as “focusing not on who did the crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place.”
 
The cast of the dramatic series includes Kristin Lehman, Louis Ferreira, Lauren Holly, Roger Cross, Brendan Penny, and Cameron Bright. The series was created by Daniel Cerone (Dexter) and executive produced by Cerone, Louise Clark, Rob Merilees, Erin Haskett, Rob LaBelle, Lindsay Macadam, and James Thorpe.
 
The Official Plot Details:
 
When murder is committed, Angie Flynn, a loving, single mother and a damned good detective, along with her partner, Detective Oscar Vega, are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer. But Motive turns the tried-and-true crime drama formula on its head by indentifying the killer and victim at the beginning of each episode. These storylines are then further explored via stylized flashbacks which piece together more of the mysterious connection between the two characters and what drove the killer to commit murder.
