Guest starring Colin Mochrie
“Carter” revolves around Harley Carter (O’Connell), the star of a hit detective TV show, who decides he needs a break from Hollywood. Carter returns to his sleepy hometown where he quickly discovers that his years of playing a fictional detective come in handy when he finds himself immersed in real-life mysteries. In season two, Carter plants roots as a celebrity Private Investigator and doubles down on his fame in a world where life continues to imitate TV. But Carter will discover that the toughest cases to solve are personal ones when he finds himself embroiled in a love triangle with his best friend – a real detective – and her new police chief, played by Lyriq Bent (She's Gotta Have It), where the stakes are winner takes all.
“Carter” is produced by Amaze Film + Television, executive produced by the company’s Teza Lawrence and Michael Souther (Call Me Fitz, Saint Ralph) as well as Campbell, Berman, series star O’Connell, and Sony Pictures Television’s Gemstone Studios serves as executive producers.
