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
The rookies of NYC 22 won't be honing their police skills on CBS much longer. The network has cancelled the cop series before the entire season has finished airing.
NYC 22 follows a half dozen police men and women as they learn the ropes in the Big Apple. The ensemble cast includes Adam Goldberg, Leelee Sobieski, Stark Sands, Judy Marte, Harold House Moore, Felix Solis, Tom Reed, and Terry Kinney.
Debuting on April 15th, in (now-cancelled) CSI: Miami's former timeslot, NYC 22 attracted a disappointing 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.86 million viewers. The second episode dropped 7% and the third fell 14% more. Last Sunday night's episode maintained a 1.2 in the demo and 6.87 million.
It was clear from the start that this new show was doomed to be cancelled.

CBS aired the season (possibly series) finale of CSI: Miami a couple weeks ago and are now filling the timeslot with a new cop show, NYC 22. Will this TV series last as long as its predecessor or will it be cancelled instead?
NYC 22 follows a diverse group of six rookie cops who are learning what it means to be members of the NYPD. The TV show's cast includes Adam Goldberg, Harold House Moore, Judy Marte, Leelee Sobieski, Stark Sands, Terry Kinney, and Tom Reed. It's produced in association with Robert De Niro's Tribecca Productions.
The cop drama debuted on April 15th to a disappointing 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.43 million total viewers. It was tied for second place in the all-important demo but first in overall viewers.
Last Sunday night's episode dropped to a 1.4 in the »
"I wanted to see what it was, and there were definitely similarities," the actress tells Zap2it. "Leelee Sobieski reminded me of Charlotte (Sullivan, alias Gail Peck on 'Rookie Blue'); Sanchez (played by Judy Marte) kind of reminded me of Andy, except she's a bit harder; and then, there's the Ben Bass kind of character." Bass plays Sam Swarek -- "Rookie" love interest of Peregrym's Andy McNally -- on the Canadian-made show set for its Season 3 launch Thursday, May 24, on ABC.
"At the end of the day, it's really, really difficult to make a brand-new show," reasons Peregrym, "to write a pilot where you have to introduce characters and everyone has to kind of be dynamic and have something different for themselves. »
All too often, the neighborhoods that need police the most are those where residents trust cops the least.
It's a tough situation for those who live there and for those trying to patrol the streets. CBS' latest drama, "NYC 22," premiering Sunday, April 15, has that delicate relationship as an undercurrent.
Though those involved with a show are always quick to dismiss the notion that it's anything we have seen before, this is a procedural cop show, albeit one with excellent credentials: Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal are executive producers, and Richard Price created it. It could not be more authentic New York, given the people behind it.
On a cold December day, the show is shooting at Amsterdam Avenue and 105th Street. It's a neighborhood of old apartment buildings and newer condos, shared by Columbia University students and longtime residents.
The cops' beat is from Morningside Heights, around Columbia, »
CBS has had no shortage of success with its cop-related dramas. In fact, for the 2011-12 season, the network has six shows in the top 20 that are based on police or military folks doing investigations. But with programs like "CSI" showing their age, it's no surprise that the network would look to insert some fresh blood into their line up. The most recent effort is "NYC 22."
The Robert De Niro-produced show follows a group of police rookies as they learn the ropes and learn about themselves while fighting crime. If this logline sounds familiar, it's probably the exact same pitch producers gave with "Rookie Blue" and countless other cop dramas.
The series features a United Nations of characters including Adam Goldberg as a former reporter, Leelee Sobieski as an ex Marine MP, Harold House Moore as a former NBA player in addition to Tom Reed, Judy Marte and Stark Sands. »
Chicago – “NYC 22” reminds me of a cover song by a really strong bar band. You can admire the craftsmanship. It doesn’t hit any wrong notes. And it reminds you of what you like about the original. But it can’t replace it. “NYC 22” is so derivative of other programs that it is constantly fighting with itself because it exposes its own flaws through the comparison. It feels like “NYPD Blue” and “Southland,” but those are the brilliant originals. This is the cover version.
TV Rating: 3.0/5.0
The cast of “NYC 22” is a strong one but the more important voice is behind the scenes as the show was created by the brilliant Richard Price, the author of the novels “Clockers,” “Samaritan,” “Lush Life,” and more, as well as one of the main writers of “The Wire.” (Read and see everything in the previous sentence…now.) Richard Price knows »

You would think from looking at the cover of The Mortician that the film somehow involves the story of a crazed and violent mortician wandering the streets of London circa 1890. And that maybe, just maybe he was dead and didn't know it. He is wearing and consulting a pocket watch after all and the film's tag line, "A Dead Man Living in a Dying City," doesn't do much to convince me otherwise. Fast forward to the end of the movie when I finally realized that The Mortician is merely a film about a lonely mortician who likes to wear outdated clothes. Whoops!
A mortician's life is changed when a woman's body arrives to his table and stirs up memories of his past. While trying to pull himself together, he »
