TV show description:
Santa Barbara police detective Henry Spencer (Corbin Bernsen) assumes that his son Shawn will follow in his footsteps and relentlessly hones the boy’s powers of deduction and observation.
As an adult, Shawn (James Roday) has a hard time finding a job that holds his interest, much to the frustration of his now-retired father. While watching a news report about a robbery, Shawn realizes that the victim is actually the guilty party.
When he goes to the police to give them the tip, he’s accused of being an accomplice because he appears to have inside information. To avoid arrest, Shawn convinces the interim chief, Karen Vick (Kirsten Nelson), that he is psychic. She warns him that, if his powers are a trick, he will be prosecuted. Because he has to keep up the act, Shawn decides to make the most of it and is hired to help the police solve difficult cases.
Head detective Carlton Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) is skeptical while junior detective Juliet O’Hara (Maggie Lawson) is intrigued. Shawn ropes his longtime best friend, pharmaceutical employee Burton “Gus” Guster (Dule Hill), into forming a detective agency with him.
