Season 1DVD - 2007-2009
Holly Hunter stars as a detective who kills a man in a drunken car crash and is given a second chance at life from an angel. As this first season opens, a drunken Grace finds herself confronted with the scruffy, divinely winged Earl (Leon Rippy) after accidentally killing a pedestrian with her car and crying out for God's help. Before disappearing along with the hit-and-run victim, Earl tells Grace she's heading for hell. All that's left on the scene is a trace of blood, which Grace promptly takes to her forensic expert friend (Laura San Giacomo) for examining. The blood, it seems, belongs to a still-living death row inmate (Bokeem Woodbine), who also receives visits from Earl. Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter stars as Grace, a truly unique police procedural heroine on the path to redemption in this spiritual and sometimes hilarious dramatic series.
