Murder in the First Details:

Set in San Francisco, Murder in the First will follow a single case across an entire season. The series follows homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) as they investigate two seemingly unrelated murders. The mystery deepens, however, when they find both murders have a common denominator in Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Felton).

Terry and Hildy’s fellow detectives in their squad include SFPD homicide inspector David Molk (Sbarge), a thoughtful philosopher-cop and frequent class clown, and his tough-as-nails partner inspector Edgar Navarro (Boyar). The ambitious and no-nonsense Lt. Jim Koto (Dale) serves as the squad’s supervisor.

Supporting Blunt in his endeavors are Bill Wilkerson (Weber), his long-time friend, driver and pilot, and Ivana West (Rous), the company’s brilliant chief technology officer. Blunt’s legal team includes David Hertzberg (Schiff), his gruff lawyer and trusted confidant, and Warren Daniels (Cromwell), a legendary criminal attorney brought in to assist when suspicion turns to Blunt. Facing them in the courtroom will be the remarkably brilliant District Attorney Sonia Perez (Parker) and pit-bull Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti (Graham).

Murder in the First also takes viewers into Terry and Hildy’s home lives. Hildy is a single mom with an inquisitive daughter (Kirkland). Terry, meanwhile, is struggling to take care of his terminally ill wife, Emily, played by guest star Anne-Marie Johnson.
