Starz' new show “Hightown” creator is Rebecca Cutter and features an LGBTQ LatinX lead. Stars Amaury Nolasco and Riley Voelkelsay the show has good representation in front and behind the camera led by women. For Amaury, the vibe on set is much better with a woman in charge, and he now prefers women run everything. We'd agree to that.
"Hightown" airs Sundays on Starz at 8pm.

“Hightown” follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, overshadowed by a murder. Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying townie, discovers a body on the beach, and becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the case. She’s immediately at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo, an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit. As their lives crash together, we’re reminded how complicated - and deadly – our addictions can be.
