"Under Suspicion" was a short-lived American television police drama set in Portland, Oregon. It was created by Jacqueline Zambrano. Its episodes were broadcast on the CBS network from September 16, 1994 to March 10, 1995.


The show starred Karen Sillas as Detective Rose "Phil" Phillips, the only female detective in a male-dominated police squad.

The supporting cast includes Philip Casnoff as Internal Affairs Sergeant Jimmy Vitelli, veteran character actor Seymour Cassel (star of "Faces" and "Minnie and Moskowitz") as Captain Mickey Schwartz, Ray Baker ("Hard Rain") as Chief DeSort, Paul McCrane as Detective Clarke, Michael Beach as Detective Desmond Beck, and Arabella Field as Patsi Moosekian.


The harsh realities of discrimination are always apparent to Detective Rose "Phil" Phillips. In addition to coping with the daily pressures of being a detective, she must break down the barrier of crude sexist comments made by her fellow cops and force them to see her as an equal.

Sexy, tough and a good cop, Phil confronts her own feelings about being a woman in a man's world when she finds herself attracted to Sergeant Jimmy Vitelli of Internal Affairs, a handsome, arrogant cop on the rise.

Phil's determination, crime-solving skills and feminine perspective make her a compassionate, outstanding detective, but she'll always be "Under Suspicion" as she struggles to prove that she's just "one of the boys."
