McBride: Fallen Idol is a 2006 mystery drama film directed by Kevin Connor and starring John Larroquette as the title character, McBride. This movie is one of the several films of the McBride franchise that aired on the Hallmark Channel. In this movie, McBride is a retired police officer turned private investigator who takes up the case of his friend, Police Detective Phil Newberry, who is accused of killing his wife, Cynthia. McBride knows Newberry for a long time, and he believes that he's incapable of such heinous crime. However, the evidence is stacked against Newberry, and the prosecution is adamant to get a conviction.

As McBride dives deep into the case, he discovers that there are a lot of secrets and hidden motives behind Cynthia Newberry's death. She was a successful businesswoman involved in a high-profile case, and her sudden death could have far-reaching consequences. Along with his associate, the tough-talking and street-smart Roberta, McBride continues his investigation, unraveling the web of lies and deceit that surrounds Cynthia's murder.

McBride soon finds himself entangled in a complex and dangerous game of cat-and-mouse as he tries to identify the killer and clear Newberry's name. Along the way, he faces a lot of challenges, including the hostility of the police department, who consider him an outsider, a dangerous adversary lurking in the shadows, and a beautiful, mysterious woman who seems to know more than she's letting on.
