TV show description:
This cop show follows a half dozen diverse rookies of the New York Police Department as they learn and patrol the gritty streets of upper Manhattan.
Jennifer “White House” Perry (Leelee Sobieski) is a former college volleyball star and Marine MP in Iraq who has a take-charge attitude. Ray “Lazarus” Harper (Adam Goldberg) is the oldest rookie of the group. As a former police news reporter, Lazarus has better inside sources than most seasoned cops
Tonya Sanchez (Judy Marte) comes from a family with a criminal history. Ahmad Kahn (Tom Reed) is an Afghani native who fought his way to freedom.
A fourth-generation police officer, Kenny McClaren (Stark Sands) has great instincts but had qualms about joining the police force. And finally, Jayson “Jackpot” Toney (Harold House Moore) is a young basketball legend who squandered his opportunity in the NBA.
The rookies’ demanding Field Training Officer is Daniel “Yoda” Dean (Terry Kinney) — a case-hardened, unsentimental veteran of the force who emphasizes basics and holds each cop accountable for their actions.
And finally, Sergeant Terry Howard (Felix Solis) rounds out the team. He’s a no-nonsense plainclothes officer from the Gang Intel Unit, who trains the rookies on how to keep the gangbangers at bay.
With their unique backgrounds, personalities, and various reasons for being part of the NYPD, the new cops make their share of rookie mistakes as they figure out how to relate to their boss, each other, and the people they have sworn to protect.
Episode 13 — Turf War
Lazarus and Tonya must convince tenants to evacuate their condemned building before the wrecking ball arrives. Meanwhile, Kenny and Ahmad try to find a pickpocket among a group of vendors, and Jackpot and White House patrol a street ball tournament.
First aired: 08/11/12
