(from ABC's press release) What do you expect when you turn on a cop show? At least one dead body, a couple of car chases and the obligatory diagnosis from forensics? Not in this quirky half hour. This show is much more interested in delving into the ins and outs and ups and downs of the people that make up a busy downtown Homicide and Robbery Division. They may carry guns and track down bad guys, but like the rest of us they still eat too many burritos, pretend to know what all the buttons do on their cell phones, and secretly wish they were on American Idol. Young, charming and acutely intelligent, newcomer Detective Marcus Green stumbles head on into the various crises of his team what to wear, who to date, how to kill a bear, and most seriously, how to avoid being lured into snooping for the petty minded Internal Affairs Investigator, Stanley Banks. Banks wants Green's aid in his longstanding feud with bombastic detective Dan Little, but no one wants to snitch on their colleagues on their first day. Green turns to unit psychologist Zoe Sherman for help, but discovers that in spite of smelling lovely she is potentially certifiable herself. Victoria Pile is a British comedy writer, director and producer, most noted as the creator of two Channel 4 comedy series, the Emmy Award-winning sketch show "Smack the Pony" and "Green Wing," a BAFTA award-winning comedy series.
