Detective McLean is a crime thriller television series produced by Reel One Entertainment in 2015. The show stars Kelli Williams as the titular character, Jennifer McLean, a detective working in the homicide division of the Vancouver Police Department. The series also features the late Luke Perry in his last on-screen role as McLean's partner, Sergeant Bennett.

The show is set in Vancouver, Canada, and follows the investigations of the city's most prominent crimes. McLean is a no-nonsense detective who is completely devoted to her job, but struggles to find balance between her career and her personal life. Despite the challenges she faces, she stays focused on her work, and her dedication to solving each case is unwavering.

The series starts with McLean returning to work after a year-long absence due to a traumatic incident that she experienced during a case. Her first case back is a high-profile murder investigation, which sets the tone for the rest of the series. The cases that follow are equally intense, and McLean and Bennett are constantly pushed to their limits as they try to bring justice to the victims and their families.

Throughout the show, McLean displays her impressive investigative skills, which often lead her to discover crucial evidence that others may have overlooked. She has a keen eye for detail, and her ability to connect the dots in a case is unmatched. Bennett, on the other hand, is a seasoned detective who has a more laid-back approach to solving cases. He serves as McLean's partner and confidant, offering support and guidance when she needs it most.

One of the show's strengths is its portrayal of the characters' personal lives. McLean is a single mother who is also dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic event. Her parenting style is often at odds with her demanding job, and she frequently struggles to find a balance between the two. Bennett, too, has his own set of personal issues, such as his strained relationship with his daughter and his own past traumas.

The show also explores social issues such as homelessness, drug addiction, and mental illness, as they intersect with the investigations. McLean's empathy and compassionate nature shine through as she interacts with victims and suspects alike, and her understanding of these issues often provides crucial insights into the cases she works on.

The production value of Detective McLean is top-notch, with each episode featuring stunning cinematography that showcases the beauty of Vancouver. The show's suspenseful musical score adds to the tension, providing a backdrop for the dramatic and emotional moments throughout the series.

Overall, Detective McLean is an engaging and well-written crime thriller that is sure to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. With strong performances from Kelli Williams and Luke Perry, as well as a talented supporting cast, the series is a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Detective McLean is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on August 12, 2015.
