James Duff’s Blog entry >

Enter the detectives of Major Crimes, whose task it is to uncover secret connections – the theme of “Cleared History” – and follow them to their logical conclusions. I don’t want to mislead you. Tonight’s episode may start with a lighter tone, but it ends in a very dark place. I ask forgiveness, in advance, for leaving a great deal of the collected evidence off-screen. Sometimes, it’s better to let our imaginations fill in the blanks.

Tony was on KTLA Morning News today to talk about the upcoming winter premiere of Major Crimes. If you missed it, KTLA uploaded it to their website > HERE

February 22, 2017

James Duff once again shared his thoughts about the upcoming episode of Major Crimes in his Facebook Blog entry.

Major Crimes will begin its winter run by dramatizing connections from its past to its future. In the aptly named “Heart Failure,” we introduce our team of detectives embroiled in an event that police officers have encountered all over the country over the last four or five years. We meet Flynn, once again adjusting to the drudgeries of desk duty. Sykes and Sanchez find a blue, Burberry jacket, once an emblem of a bright future, hanging in a closet associated with a much darker past. Buzz gets a disturbing letter, which he’s not sure how to answer.

February 15 – James Duff’s Blog Post

While finding connections is a common tool in murder investigations, the word also honored what we consider to be the exceptional relationship we have with our audience. Also, we wanted to “connect” the possible conclusion of Major Crimes to what had come before.

February 20 – New York Post – Camryn Manheim pushes buttons as steely chief on ‘Major Crimes’

When Flynn appears and says Raydor is needed back in the interview room, Davis responds, with a smirk and an unflinching stare, “Go ahead — your boyfriend’s calling you.”

Viewers are left to wonder about Davis’ true intent.

“Does it mean, ‘You don’t have a full commitment to this department because you have so many other extracurricular activities’?” asks Manheim. “Or does she have a personal vendetta against a captain who’s very well-respected and actually has a personal life and somebody that cares about her? You wonder if that is just doubly-loaded with envy.”

February 21 – Troy L. Foreman interviewed James Duff for The Pop Culture Principle

Pop Culture Principle – Andy Flynn seems to suffer a heart attack in the last episode before the break. What can you tell us about his condition and why that was written into his story?
James Duff – The character didn’t really take his last health scare very seriously and now he’s going to have to reconsider what is going on in his body and how he wants to move forward in life and everything he believes in he needs to reconsider. He may not be going out again and may be tied to a desk for the rest of his career and he needs to think about how he wants to handle that, if he wants to handle that. Andy has emotional stuff coming out of next season that starts in the middle of our run here of eight and plays out in the first nine episodes of next season.

February 22 – TV Line -Major Crimes Boss Previews Andy’s Fate and the Fight for Taylor’s Job

Andy (Anthony Denison) had been KO’d by his ticker when last we tuned. in. So how is he, months later? “He’s gotten a final wake up call, and this one he is going to have to listen to,” says Duff. “He’s got to change his life, and that puts pressure on him to grab for happiness right now.” Because even with things going quite well between him and Sharon, “His life is incomplete, and he wants to make it more complete,” the EP teases.

February 22 – MCTV Exclusive with James Duff

MCTV:We were all thrilled and relieved by the recent renewal announcement for season 6, but it came pretty late in the game in terms of where you were in the production schedule of these episodes. Did the delay in renewal affect the storytelling and how you wrote this winter arc, not knowing if there would be another season after this?

JD: I was preparing to do the last eight episodes as if we were going to do no more, but we also planned it so the last episode could go a multitude of ways depending on what happened. The word came down [that the show was renewed] before we started shooting the last two episodes. So as things turned out, we were prepared for the renewal with an alternate script, and the renewal came, and so we had that script ready to shoot.
