He works alongside NYPD Detective Gil Arroyo, a seasoned lawman who has become Bright’s surrogate father; Detective Dani Powell, a headstrong no-nonsense cop who is quickly impressed with Bright’s work; Edrisa Tanaka, a slightly off-center coroner; and Detective JT Tarmel, a born-and-bred New Yorker who questions whether Bright is a psychopath himself. But Bright’s best resource for solving crimes is his dear old dad, the homicidal-yet-oddly-loving Martin Whitly, whose expertise he must reluctantly call upon. As Bright helps track down the city’s most dangerous criminals, he also battles his own demons — and it doesn’t help that his mother, former leading socialite Jessica Whitly, can’t seem to accept her fallen status and has an opinion on every aspect of Bright’s life. Luckily for Bright, he has the support of his annoyingly normal sister Ainsley, a news reporter with a soft spot for her brother and all his eccentricities. After all, Bright isn’t a serial killer — he was just raised by one.
