Based on a novel by Linda Fairstein, the made-for-TV Final Jeopardy stars Dana Delany as prosecuting attorney Alexandra Cooper. During a visit to Alexandra's Manhattan apartment, her best friend, an actress, is murdered. At first wondering why anyone would want to kill her friend, Alexandra arrives at the horrifying conclusion that she herself was the intended victim -- and that the killer is prepared to try again at any time. Billy Burke costars as Mike Chapman, who after being dragged into the murder investigation, falls in love with Alexandra, a plot complication that could very well end in tragedy for at least one of the parties involved. Final Jeopardy premiered April 9, 2001 on ABC.
