Bonilla (Revenge) as young, wisecracking Detective “Denny” Padilla who has a penchant for Carrie, much to the dismay of Al. Additional players include Skeet Ulrich (Law and Order: LA) as Carrie’s mysterious long lost husband Eddie Martin and comedienne Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live) as Rosie Webb, the patience-testing star witness in a high-profile securities fraud case whom Carrie and Al are tasked with safely delivering to Miami. Grammy-winner Ashanti (Army Wives) is Stella, a gorgeous jazz singer caught up in the underbelly of NYC’s music scene, who catches the eye of Al. Series regular James Hiroyuki Liao returns as Major Crimes team member Jay Lee.

Unforgettable is produced by Timberman-Beverly Productions and Jones Agee Productions in association with Sony Pictures TV. Executive Producers include creators Ed Redlich and John Bellucci as well as Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Bill Chais and Poppy Montgomery. Composer Jacob Groth.
