Plot Synopsis

DEADLY RECALL is a one-hour true crime series features Detective Pat Postiglione, who has the gift of a photographic memory. With over 25 years of experience as a Nashville homicide detective, he has seen hundreds of crime scenes -- and remembers each as if it happened yesterday. Coupled with a laser sharp eye for evidence and a brain that is trained to detect microscopic clues, Det. Postiglione is one of the most valuable minds on the force. For the first time ever, Det. Postiglione recounts his most daunting cases, walking viewers through the locations in exacting detail. Each crime scene is carefully recreated based on actual police records and the gift of Det. Postiglione's unparalleled memory. Episodes begin with Det. Postiglione tracing out the clues, inviting viewers to piece together the evidence as he forms new leads. It's a game of connecting the dots to find the culprit, and there's no brain better suited for the job than his. In each of the six hour-long episodes, Det. Postiglione relives the imagery and talks through the evidence. All physical clues lead Pat down a winding path to the guilty party, ensuring justice at the culmination of each show. In his search, he combines background information, suspect interviews and expert testimony, but he always relies on what he trusts the most, his memory of the scene itself. He willingly revives these heart-wrenching memories because he feels it is his duty to uncover the truth. His mind might be a blessing, it might be a curse, but it's the only life he's ever known.
