Close to Home is an American crime-drama television series co-produced by Warner Bros. Television and Jerry Bruckheimer Television for CBS. It first aired from October 4, 2005 to May 11, 2007 and starred actress Jennifer Finnigan as Annabeth Chase, a Deputy Prosecutor for Marion County, Indiana. Created by Jim Leonard, the series was primarily filmed in Southern California. The score composer was Michael A. Levine.

On May 16, 2007, the series was officially canceled by CBS.[1]



Annabeth Chase is a criminal prosecutor with a near perfect conviction record. Throughout the series, she lost only one case, in the first season's second-to-last episode. She was married to a construction worker, Jack Chase (Christian Kane), and has an infant daughter, Hailey.

The show revolves around her balancing her career and family life, as a prosecutor in the city of Indianapolis.

First season

In the pilot episode, Chase returns from a 12-week maternity leave to find herself with a new boss, Maureen Scofield (Kimberly Elise), who has been promoted instead of her. Maureen is a no-nonsense woman who sometimes resents Chase's personal life. Above her is County Prosecutor Steve Sharpe (John Carroll Lynch). Chase wins the first case she prosecutes upon her return to work: an abusive husband is sentenced to 25 years in jail without parole.

Second season

Annabeth returns to work four months after her husband was killed by a drunk driver on the first season finale. Annabeth's coming to terms with her husband's death, her grief, and her struggle to return to normalcy coupled with the guilt and trials of being a single parent are recurring themes throughout the season.

Annabeth and Maureen also face a new boss, Chief Deputy Prosecutor James Conlon (David James Elliott), who has just arrived from New York, and whose methods appear to the two prosecutors to be too forceful and sometimes unethical.

Near the end of the season, Conlon attempts an attorney general campaign which is derailed as police corruption is discovered, resulting in several prosecutions. Scofield is assassinated as a result of these prosecutions. The season (and series) ends with Chase successfully prosecuting Scofield's assassin.
