Want to watch Hightown online? Here’s how to watch Monica Raymund’s new Starz series live, on TV and online, so you don’t miss the Hightown premiere.
The series is Monica Raymund’s first series regular role since portraying Gabriela Dawson in the Chicago franchise, and it could not be more different from a network TV show. The show explores the opioid crisis in America while also setting up a murder mystery that Raymund’s character has to solve—and like most premium cable shows, it gets intense.
Jackie Quinones spends her days working for the federal government as a park services officer. But she also happens to be a drug addict who spends her nights and weekends partying and going through plenty of random hookups. Jackie’s life is a runaway freight train destined to crash, but then she finds an anonymous body washed up on the Cape Cod beach, and it serves as a wake-up call.
Unfortunately, there are people who’d prefer she stay out of their investigation. That includes an equally rough around the edges cop, played by James Badge Dale (24, Rubicon). But Jackie has no intention of giving up, and so this murder investigation turns into a chaotic mess of everyone’s problems, secrets and strong personalities. Will Jackie find the killer and her sobriety, or could this ultimately kill her?
Starz subscribers can watch Hightown premiere on Sunday, but even if you don’t have the channel, there are ways to watch. We’ve compiled everything you need to know so that you don’t miss out on the next Monica Raymund project.
Here’s how Starz officially describes the series:
Set in beautiful but bleak Cape Cod, Hightown follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation. Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, has her free-wheeling life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach: another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. To deal with the trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward sobriety — until she becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the murder.
Now at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo, an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, Jackie starts to spiral. And she’s not alone: Ray himself crosses more lines than he can count in the name of the investigation. The two of them, along with everyone else connected to the murder, all circle each other, and as their lives crash together, we’re reminded just how complicated – and deadly – our addictions can be.
