Rob Lowe and Sam Neill, as detective partners on the NYPD, get entangled in the fancy world of bribes, loose cash, beautiful women and jet-set lifestyles in the TNT film "Framed," debuting Sunday at 8 p.m.
Alicia Coppola, Peter MacNeill and Dorian Harewood also star in the movie in which Lowe, a bright young detective, is put back into uniform for five years when his partner, Neill, takes a bribe.
When Lowe finds his old colleague hiding out in the Bahamas, he pulls him back to New York for a trial and his own vindication. But Neill begins to pull Lowe into his masterfully woven web of deception hoping to implicate him in this psychological thriller where truth and lies become indistinguishable.
Lowe recently left the cast of "The West Wing," where he had played the role of Sam Seaborn since the hit NBC drama debuted in 1999.
