TV show description:
This action comedy series is based on the Rush Hour feature film franchise. It follows a maverick LAPD detective and a by-the-book detective from Hong Kong who knock heads when they are forced to partner together.
Detective Lee (Jon Foo) is a reserved and honorable master martial artist with lightning-fast moves. He comes to Los Angeles to avenge his sister’s alleged death and learn more about her connection to a Chinese organized crime ring.
Meanwhile, Detective Carter (Justin Hires) is a wisecracking cop who plays by his own rules. Carter’s boss, Captain Lindsay Cole (Wendie Malick), often gets frustrated with him she knows he’s a brilliant detective who gets results.
Attempting to help the two partnered detectives get along is Sergeant “Didi” Diaz (Aimee Garcia), Carter’s friend and former partner who doesn’t hesitate to call him out on his antics.
Secretly aiding them as an informant is Carter’s cousin, Gerald (Page Kennedy). He’s a low-level offender who runs with a tough crowd.
Even as their cultures clash and tempers flare, Carter and Lee can’t deny they make a formidable team. They’ll also grudgingly admit that sometimes an unlikely pairing can make for a great partnership.
