Matt Passmore Discusses the Complex Relationships of 'The Glades' (VIDEO)

Matt Passmore of 'The Glades' on 'Good Day LA'Steve Edwards, anchor of 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) is a big fan of 'The Glades.' In an interview on Wednesday, he told 'Glades' star Matt Passmore that he'd seen every episode of the show, and gushed about the characters and their relationships, especially the chemistry between Passmore's Jim Longworth and Kiele Sanchez's Callie Cargill.

Passmore said 'Glades' creator and writer Clifton Campbell had written the relationship between Longworth and Cargill to be complex. "Most television, especially procedurals, work on just a simmering tension," he said. "Ours isn't so much about tension but about obstacles. So already it's, you know, guy meets girl, guy finds out that girl is married to a guy in prison, has a child, and all the complexities that come with that."

Review: What Does 'The Glades' Have to Do With Your Laundry?

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 2nd 2011 4:15PM
'The Glades' (10PM ET Sunday, A&E) may not have risen to the level of must-see TV, but it's certainly gotten better.

If you think of the Florida-set detective drama as a less ambitious 'Burn Notice' or a throwback to the moderately competent police procedurals of years gone by, it may well work as a pleasant summer diversion.

The biggest change is that the lead character, relocated Chicago police officer Jim Longworth, is no longer off-puttingly obnoxious, as he was in last year's wince-inducing pilot for 'The Glades.' Jim, who's played by Matt Passmore, has been wisely dialed down several notches and given relatively interesting cases to work.

'The Glades' Set Visit: Not Just Another Cop Drama

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 9th 2010 2:00PM

In the fictional town of Palm Glade -- a town on the edge of the Florida Everglades within driving distance of the glitzy Gold Coast -- the heat is on. But it's not just car chases and glass towers overlooking azure waters; 'The Glades' is Florida in a more realistic and gritty style, with dead bodies surfacing to get Detective Jim Longworth off the golf course and deep into solving the whodunit.

This guy, played by Australian actor Matt Passmore ('Underbelly'), can best be described as a modern day, shaggy-haired, pain-in-the-ass, annoyingly overconfident Sherlock Holmes ... And did I mention he's hot?

On Sun., July 11, at 10PM ET, 'The Glades' premieres on A&E. For a behind the scenes look at the making of the show, as well as more on Matt and company, read on.

A&E Picks Up 'Sugarloaf' for Thirteen Episodes

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 25th 2010 4:01PM
A&EWe told you a couple of weeks ago that A&E was adding more scripted dramas to its lineup after the cancellations of 'The Beast' and 'The Cleaner.' One of those shows talked about was a new drama titled 'Sugarloaf,' and now The Hollywood Reporter says that the show has been picked up for thirteen episodes.

The show is about a Chicago detective who is framed for something he didn't do (of course) so he decides to move down to Florida and the small town of Sugarloaf. If that sounds sorta kinda similar to 'Burn Notice,' it's probably not coincidental. The show will be produced by the same studio that does the USA Network show (Fox TV Studios - they do 'White Collar' too), and VP David Madden pointed to both of those shows as guides when talking about 'Sugarloaf.'

But that's OK. Good shows are good shows for reasons other than plot. 'Sugarloaf' will star Matt Passmore. Also in the cast is Kiele Sanchez, who you might remember as Nikki from 'Lost.' To me she'll always be Susan on 'Married to the Kellys.'

Matt PassmoreA&E is shifting gears with its latest foray into scripted television.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network has picked up 'Sugarloaf' for a 13-episode run. The show stars Matt Pasmore (pictured), and is named after the Florida resort town where Passmore's character -- a homicide detective -- winds up after he's wrongfully accused of sleeping with his captain's wife. Once he arrives, he realizes, of course, that things are much more complicated than he initially expected.

Of the series, A&E Senior Vice President of Drama Programming Tana Nugent Jamieson said, "It takes a typical gritty police procedural but has fun with the main character against the blue-sky backdrop of rural Florida. It's pure entertainment."

Aussie Matt Passmore to Star in A&E's 'Sugarloaf' -- Is He the Next Simon Baker?

by Anna Dimond, posted Nov 6th 2009 5:24PM
A&E is warming up for summer drama. The network has greenlit an hourlong pilot for 'Sugarloaf' and nabbed Aussie hunk Matt Passmore to star, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

'Sugarloaf' features Passmore as Jim Longworth, a beleaguered ex-cop from Chicago who's kicked off the force after his partner shoots him and wrongfully accuses him of having an affair with his wife. With payout in hand, Longworth heads for the sunnier climes of a small town in Florida, where he joins the state police.

Clifton Campbell wrote the pilot, and is executive producing it with Gary Randall, while Peter O'Fallon is directing. A&E had been interested in the project for some time, but reportedly stayed mum until it had its star.
