A&E Orders 'Sugarloaf'


A&E, an American cable network, has greenlit a new original drama called Sugarloaf (working title). This upcoming series is produced by Fox Television Studios will begin production shortly on its 13 episodes in Miami, Florida. Moreover, Sugarloaf's premiere is slated for summer 2010.


The leading stars of the show are Australian actor Matt Passmore (McLeod's Daughters, Underbelly), Kiele Sanchez (Lost, Samantha Who?) and Carlos Gómez (Shark, Sleeper Cell)

In Sugarloaf, Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former Captain's wife is forced into exile. Longworth relocates to Sugarloaf, a sleepy small resort town in the middle of nowhere on the Gulf Coast of Florida where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. Yet life in Sugarloaf is not as beautiful as it may seem.

In the pilot episode, the easy life quickly falls by the wayside when a decapitated, unidentifiable woman is found in a creek, begrudgingly dragging Longworth off the golf course in pursuit of her killer. Complicating matters more is his relationship with Callie (Sanchez), a quick-witted, beautiful med student with a 12 year-old son and a husband in prison. With a Titleist sitting on the fourteenth fairway waiting for him to break eighty for the first time in his life, Longworth needles, cajoles, and harangues everyone in his path, including his golf partner and department medical examiner Carlos (Gómez), as he puzzles out the facts surrounding the mysterious killing to try and identify the victim and bring her killer to justice.

Finally, Sugarloaf is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series will be executive produced by Clifton Campbell ("White Collar," "The Profiler," "21 Jump Street") and Gary Randall ("Saving Grace") for Grand Productions, Inc. The pilot was written by Clifton Campbell.
