Police work isn’t rocket science. It’s harder. This February, 2nd Avenue brings a different kind of thrill to your binge-watching as it premieres two new police drama series.
Gritty, emotional, darkly humorous and terrifically intense, TRAINING DAY is a reimagining of the groundbreaking film of the same name, beginning 15 years later, and exploring a modern-day Los Angeles in all its guts and glory. Starring Bill Paxton and executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Antoine Fuqua (director of the original film), writer Will Beall, Barry Schindel, Jonathan Littman and director Danny Cannon, TRAINING DAY features a dynamic ensemble of actors and explosive action that will keep viewers hooked.
The LAPD’s Kyle Craig played by Justin Cornwell is one of the good guys. A rookie cop bumped up to detective in the elite and elusive S.I.S. (Special Investigation Section), a unit that goes after the worst of the worst, he’s been tasked by Deputy Chief Lockhart (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) to expose the corruption of veteran cop Frank Rourke (Paxton), a charming but crooked detective — and the head of S.I.S. And as much as Frank thinks he doesn’t need anyone, having Kyle, a politically correct poster boy for the new police order, as his trainee could be beneficial as they maneuver the streets and track the city’s most dangerous offenders. So, as the bullets fly and we enter the undercover world of S.I.S. with these partners who don’t trust each other, who’s training who?
Don’t miss the premiere of TRAINING DAY on February 3, Friday via satellite at 3 PM and on primetime at 9 PM. Join the conversation at #TrainingDayOn2ndAve.
Inspired by the New York Times Magazine article “Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans,” APB comes with a high-tech twist from executive producer/director Len Wiseman (Lucifer, Underworld) and executive producers and writers Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and Trey Callaway (The Messengers).
Sky-high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups and corruption: the over-extended and under-funded Chicago Police Department is spiraling out of control. Enter billionaire engineer Gideon Reeves played by Emmy® Award and Golden Globe® nominee Justin Kirk. After his best friend is murdered in a botched attempted robbery, and the killer remains at large, Gideon demands justice. Putting up millions of dollars of his own money, he makes an unprecedented deal to take over the troubled 13th District – and reboot it as a private police force: better, faster and smarter than anything seen before. With Gideon himself having created the department’s cutting-edge technology, this eccentric yet brilliant outsider challenges the city’s police force to rethink everything about the way they fight crime.
Be sure to catch the premiere of APB on February 7, Tuesday via satellite at 3 PM and on primetime at 9 PM. Join the conversation at #APBon2ndAve.
