A one-hour, single-camera action, crime, mystery, thriller, drama series adapted from these four commercially available novels:
Privilege, Tinseltown Deception, Another Agenda, and Secret Circle
John Waters and Bud Stigall
Set in Southern California in current day, Westmore Justice follows Grant Westmore, a former LAPD detective-turned-Beverly Hills-private-investigator, and his unorthodox crew, who thrive on often media-frenzied cases outside the purview of local or federal law enforcement.
Franchise Plot Summary
At times blurring the line between legal right and wrong, Westmore Justice takes a fresh approach to crime solving by fitting the many jagged fragments of the case into a single, appalling truth from “outside-into-the-squad-room," as commonly known within law enforcement circles.
As the clues unfold, and the series progresses from one fiendish high-profile murder, white collar crime or deceptive scheme to the next, Grant goes with gut intuition and hunches, and not by standard police procedures to find out exactly what’s going on.
Grant teeters on the “thin blue line” in identifying and following the most insignificant events and clues in a case that are normally missed by law enforcement in their typical investigation. Grant’s crew puts themselves in a victim’s shoes, while simultaneously thinking like a criminal or a murderer. They know that to catch a killer, they have to think like a killer.
Unwilling to settle for anything but the truth, Grant and his team, Marlene Wilson, Carmela Gambini and Jake Baldwin, are no strangers to wrestling problems and their perpetrators head-on. While they always prevail against swelling and unsettling evidence to the contrary by solving the “how” and “why” of a case, they will yank you from the edge of your seat, while keeping your eyes glued to your television screen.
Grant is known to make you laugh, to make you cry as he tugs at your emotions, and other times to make you scratch your head as you wonder: “Just how the hell did Grant figure that out.”
General Summary of Series
Westmore Justice was inspired by current events in national news, pop culture and the ever-evolving technology world. As such, Westmore Justice offers an ideal medium to explore the “who” and “what” is behind these stories and topics, which folks of any age, walk of life, ethnic background, and country origin are talking about around office watercoolers, over happy hour drinks, and at parties, sporting events and neighborhood barbeques.
Westmore Justice will be serialized with an ongoing plotline for each whole season. Each episode in Westmore Justice will end with an event or development in the case that entices the viewer to watch the following episode to find out what happens next. Every week there will be a new problem to solve or clues to connect that are similar to the previous week’s problem or clues, yet not quite the same.
The Westmore Justice Second Edition novels are available worldwide at Barnes & Noble and Amazon in paperback and hardcover, and digitally on Nook, Kindle and Apple iBooks. And of course, at neighborhood bookstores and booksellers such as Target and Wal-Mart.
From the sunny beaches of Malibu, California, to the corridors of power in Washington, DC, the first four novels in Westmore Justice are truly ideal for the first four seasons of an episodic television action/crime/drama franchise.
