From John Wells, the Emmy®-winning producer of ER and The West Wing, comes SOUTHLAND – a raw and authentic look into a Los Angeles police unit. From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of East L.A., this fast-moving drama takes viewers inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families. John Cooper (Band of Brothers' Michael Cudlitz) is a seasoned Los Angeles cop assigned to train young rookie Ben Sherman (The O.C.'s Ben McKenzie). And although Cooper's harsh, tell-it-like-it-is approach often leaves Ben questioning whether he has what it takes to be a cop, he remains on the force. The outstanding ensemble cast also features Ray's Regina King as Detective Lydia Adams, ER's Tom Everett Scott as her partner Russell Clarke, Crossing Jordan's Arija Bareikis as patrol officer and wannabe SWAT team member Chickie Brown, and Day Break's Michael McGrady as Daniel 'Sal' Salinger who oversees fellow gang detectives Nate Moretta (Kevin Alejandro) and Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy).]]>
Southland: Redefining the Cop Drama: producers and cast reveal the story behind creating a new series about the LAPD

awfully short. This one is seven episodes, and others are only six. However,
the creators do pack a great deal of action into these forty-minute segments.
The pace is a whirlwind in effect, and the many storylines--virtually each
cop has his or her own--provide a lot of content. This isn't a procedural,
obsessed with the facts of the case, like Law and Order or CSI. This is
a drama about the souls of the cops themselves. It's almost spiritual. One
odd aspect of it is seeing C. Thomas Howell, whom we remember from long-ago
kid films, now playing a destructive and irresponsible screw-up cop.
