Plot Synopsis

Created and executive produced by Rebecca Cutter, HIGHTOWN is a drama series that follows one woman's journey to sobriety, overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation. Jackie Quinones, a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, has her life thrown into disarray when she discovers a dead body on the beach -- another casualty of the opioid epidemic. She's convinced it's up to her to solve the murder, putting her at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo, an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit. The two of them, along with everyone else connected to the murder, circle each other, and their lives crash together.

The sophomore season of HIGHTOWN premiered on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT on Starz. In Season 2, the picture-perfect version of summer on Cape Cod clashes with its off-season reality. Jackie Quinones achieving her dream of becoming a real cop, is out to do some good in this world. Thrust immediately into the crime wave of deadly carfentanyl flooding the Cape, Jackie is laser-focused on bringing down drug dealer Frankie Cuevas, the man Jackie holds responsible for the death of her best friend, Junior. For Jackie, it is personal but then again, for Jackie, everything is personal. When Frankie's cousin Jorge joins his operation, he introduces a new level of violence and chaos. With disgraced officer Ray Abruzzo off the force and mired in depression, Jackie finds a new partner in Leslie, the only other female on the force. Through it all, Jackie must walk the tightrope of sobriety as she struggles to stay above an ocean of secrets, betrayal and the shame and failure of her past. Season 2 guest stars include: Luis Guzman as Jorge Cuevas, Frankie's charmingly hilarious but deadly cousin; Jona Xiao as Daisy; Carlos Gomez as Rafael Quinones; Mark Boone Junior as Petey; Cecil Blutcher as Vernon; and Crystal Lee Brown as Janelle.
On Sunday, December 26, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT, Starz premiered "Fool Me Twice," the Season 2 finale of HIGHTOWN. The whole Great White operation is exposed, but some mysteries remain; Ray has a complicated ending; Jackie goes from feeling like a hero after an important discovery to the zero who let something critical get away.
