“Mirage” is a procedural franchise set in the Palm Springs and the desert communities of
Southern California. We follow Mia Harlow, a single mom and an ex-homicide detective from
Los Angeles, as she tries to reboot her life in a city that is not the sunny playground that
it appears to be.
Once a small desert hideaway, the city of Palm Springs and the adjacent
communities have blossomed into a cultural Mecca and vacation hot-spot.
World class golf, tennis and polo tournaments broadcast worldwide have
pulled spectators away from the TV and onto courses, court and fields,
and into the beautiful hotels and country clubs. And more recently,
the epic music festivals Coachella and Stage Coach have drawn tens
of thousands to explore and experience the California desert. But as
with every exciting community, beneath the glamour lies a world
of crime and intrigue. Meet Mia Harlow, former Los Angeles
homicide detective, who now finds herself square into the
middle of it.
After the mysterious and unsolved death of her
husband, Mia and her teenage daughter relocate to the
desert, and into her father’s condo in retirement golf
course community. But before they can even settle in,
Mia is thrust into a series of bizarre murders that have
law enforcement baffled. Enlisted by a local Sheriff,
Mia breaks her self-made promise to herself to
stay out of the line of fire and joins the team.
One thing is for sure, not everything is as it
seems under the desert sun…
