Juliette Lewis on 'Memphis Beat': 'I love the blend of genres'

Juliette Lewis returns to the small screen Tuesday, June 29 on "Memphis Beat," the new procedural with a twist from TNT. Zap2it caught up with Lewis amidst her European tour with her band, The Licks, to talk about her guest spot on the show.

When asked what was intriguing about the role for her, Lewis explains, "I was so excited. Jason Lee is a friend of mine and he said do you want to be a part of ['Memphis Beat'] and I looked at the script and I was really blown away by the writing. For me, for my character specifically, she's always hiding something."

"I love the blend of genres," Lewis continues. "There's just so many elements to the show ... I haven't done anything dramatic in a while and I just love my drama, so it was really fun to play this character full of pathos and despair and so much subtext."

"Memphis Beat" is set (obviously) in Memphis but it shoots in New Orleans. What was like that for the actress?
