Check out the character descriptions:
Hamilton plays Trent Havelock, Scott Turner’s senior vice-marshal. The one thing he likes more than chasing bad guys is getting credit at the press conference that follows. He gets all the fame, all the fame, and all the big boxes – whatever Scott thinks he wants. And he doesn’t like dogs very much.
Campbell plays Grady Garland, Laura Turner’s ex-husband and Matthew’s father. He’s a well-meaning small-town cop who peaked in high school and, now, probably has more in common with his 8-year-old son than with his ex.
Rosato plays Olivia, fiancee to Xavier Watkins. An Oakland Midwestern police officer, she is warm, serious and enthusiastic – seemingly the opposite of her enigmatic future husband.
