Good Behavior airs on the TNT channel, along with their other hit scripted shows; Major Crimes, The Last Ship, Animal Kingdom, and The Librarians.

She infrequently sees her parole officer who is exasperated by her attitude and lack of progress. While robbing a hotel room, Letty, hiding in the closet, overhears a discussion about a contract killing. Her unsuccessful effort to prevent the killing creates a series-long involvement with the killer, Javier, to the point of a full relationship and participation in subsequent “hits” and a startling family reunion.
