FOX is headed to the Windy City. This week, the network announced they’ve given a series order to APB for the 2016-2017 season.
The cop drama is produced and directed by Len Wiseman, who also executive produces the FOX series Sleepy Hollow.
Inspired by true events, APB is about the Chicago Police Department spiraling out of control amid sky-high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups and corruption. After witnessing a violent crime first-hand, genius tech billionaire GIDEON REEVES (Justin Kirk), decides to do something about it, putting up millions of dollars of his own money to take over the troubled 13th Precinct and reboot it as a private police force: better, faster and smarter than anything seen before. With cutting-edge technology and revolutionary new ideas, Gideon plans to rethink everything about the way cops fight crime.”
The police drama also stars, Natalie Martinez as Officer Theresa Murphy, Eric Winter as Scott Murphy, Ernie Hudson as Sgt. Ned Conrad, Taylor Handley as Officer Nicholas Brandt, Tamberla Perry as Officer Tasha Goss, Caitlin Stasey as Ada Hamilton.
What do you think? Do you enjoy police dramas? Will you watch APB?
The local police units in Chicago are NEVER called precincts, which is the term for the neighborhood-level voting areas that are used only for elections. In Chicago, the local police stations and the areas they cover are referred to as DISTRICTS.
FINALLY…APB….An Original Police Show!!!!…Thank You FOX! I know this will be a huge hit. We are very excited . Great Actors in this show too!
Yes I have been waiting patiently for the start of the exciting APB to begin. I thought it was due for release on the 20th of oct 2016 but now I’m not sure. When is actual airing date for it to begin please.
Not sure where you heard that date. FOX has only said mid-season so that likely means early 2017.
