A quick-witted drama, PSYCH follow the adventures of young police consultant, Shawn Spencer, who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he's psychic ? at least that's what he lets them believe. Spencer is joined by his best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus, and his disapproving father, who ironically was the one who honed his son's observation skills as a child. In the premiere episode we meet Shawn's mother, Madeleine, played by Golden Globe winner and Emmy-nominated TV legend Cybill Shepherd. Madeleine, a criminal psychologist, returns to Santa Barbara to help the SBPD with a case much to the surprise of her son and ex-husband, Henry. We also see the Spencer family focus with the dysfunction of Madeleine and Henry's divorce as Shawn deals with the two of them back in his life. The PSYCH agency is on the case of a ghost in the home of Gus' boss.
