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.

Series Finale:     
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.

    Moronic decision. I didn’t know it had been cancelled and have been eagerly anticipating season 2 – until now. Idiots.

      Why can’t you exec’s get with it AND STOP THE MASSIVE OVERLOAD OF TALK AND REALITY SHOWS, WE NEED SHOWS OF THIS CALIPER TO HOLD OUR INTEREST. IT HAS NO CHANCE UNLESS IT IS GIVEN A CHANCE AND PEOPLE KNOW IT IS OUT THERE TO SEE INSTEAD OF STUMBLING UPON IT BY ACCIDENT. DO YOU PEOPLE EVER COUNT THE DVR RECORDINGS THAT GET WATCHED BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE NO FREE TIME WHILE TRYING TO FEED THEIR FAMILIES. WE GET TO WATCH WHEN WE GET HOME FROM WORK OR GET A MOMENT TO REST. I hate the fact that this show has gotten the ax! Shows like Dancing With the Stars and other stupid shows that ABC have on to view are a waste of brain function. Apparently it is nothing but a way to try and appease stars who have lost their sparkle and need an ego stroke. The ONLY show that is reality based on regular t.v. should be SURVIVOR & BIG BROTHER!!!!! SOUTHLAND IS ONE SHOW THAT I AM A DEVOTED FAN AS I WAS WITH NYC 22 AND ROOKIE BLUE!!!!! ALONG WITH BLUE BLOOD!!!! ALSO MERLIN WAS CANCELLED, I GUESS BECAUSE IT WAS TOO MUCH OF A FAMILY SHOW TO MAKE IT. IT WAS AS SHOW THAT OUR KIDS COULD WATCH ON CABLE!!!! LONGMIRE, HELL ON WHEELS, COPPER, AND THE RIPPER ARE OTHER SHOWS THAT PEOPLE SHOULD SEE. THEY ARE FANTASTIC!!!! PLEASE BRING BACK THE GREAT SHOWS THAT ARE CANCELLED…. GET RID OF THE IDIOT GIVING THEM THE AX!!!!! APPARENTLY YOUR NEALSON BOX’S ARE NOT IN THE RIGHT HOUSEHOLDS!!!!

    HAHA! I LOVE being right! I knew when the show aired its first episode it would be canceled. It can’t compete with Blue Bloods even though they were on different nights. LMFAO!!!

  5. cfly says

    I loved this show! DeNiro needs to fight for this one,hard. Can’t believe they keep those mindless reality shows geared to brainless twits and cancel a good quality drama. Terry Kinney in an amazing actor! Reconsider bringing this back and give it the promotions you give the stupid shows!!!!

    I thought it was a pretty good show. I don’t know why they cancelled it. The shows that should all be cancelled are all those dumb reality shows.

  7. Maureen says

    Very u[set CBS canceled this show. Why do they cancel all the good shows and leave the garbage? Please, CBS, reconsider.

  8. Haley says

    The IS a great show!!! CBS, in case you occasion to notice or rethink this decision. Great complex characters, love the diversity!! Why cancel this one and leave garbage like Two and a half Men for instance. smh

  9. Ben says

    Why the hell ever start watching a series anyome? CBS has become NBC _ cancelling s ahows after only and episode or 2. I LOVED this show! I’m just going to start taping every news show for a few weeks & if they keep them on, I’ll start watching. No poit in investing emotionally in a series if it goes away – with no warning! I am sick of this. Re-runs of CSI Miami rate higher than this? COME -ON!!!
