As part of their session at Sunday’s Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press tour, Netflix offered the first official trailer for showrunner/executive producer Andy Breckman‘s (Monk) new dramedy series The Good Cop, starring singer Josh Groban and Tony Danza. Set to premiere on September 21st, the hour-long, 10-episode dramedy series is executive produced by pilot episode director Randy Zisk and Howard Klein, with Danza serving as a producer.
“Many cop shows feature dark and provocative material: psycho-sexual killers, twisted, grim, flawed detectives. Many address the most controversial issues of the day. I watch a lot of them. God bless ’em all. But the show I want to produce is playful, family-friendly, and a celebration of old-fashioned puzzle-solving.” – Andy Breckman
In The Good Cop, Danza’s Tony Sr./”Big Tony” is a former NYPD officer who lives with his son, Tony Jr./”TJ”, Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules while solving Brooklyn’s toughest cases. Father and son become unofficial partners, as Tony Sr. offers his overly cautious son blunt, street-wise advice.
The Good Cop stars Danza as Tony Sr., a disgraced former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., (Groban, in his first starring role), an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly cautious son blunt, streetwise advice.
Joining Danza and Groban for the freshman year of The Good Cop is Monica Barbaro as female lead Cara Vasquez, the street-smart and self-assured newest detective on the All-City Homicide Task Force. She believes in getting the job done, even if that means bending the rules. Isiah Whitlock Jr. is also on board, playing veteran homicide detective Burl Loomis is marking the days left until retirement. Slow on his feet but quick with a deadpan retort, he has little patience for the department’s younger, more energetic members.
