About the James Duff Interview

Hi reddit, I am James Duff and I am a writer. I have created the television shows Major Crimes, The Closer and The D.A. plus written television movies and Broadway and off-Broadway plays. Before I was a writer, I was a stage actor in New York and Texas and G.W. Bailey (Lieutenant Provenza on Major Crimes and The Closer) was my acting teacher!

Be sure to check out the season three finale of Major Crimes on TNT tonight. It is a two-hour finale beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Victoria's helping me out via phone tonight. AMA!


UPDATE: Thank you very much to everyone for taking the time to spend with me today, and for your continued interest and attention to our show. From everyone at MAJOR CRIMES, I express our gratitude. And don't forget to watch us tonight as we say farewell 'til the summer!
