The opening sequence in “Shades of Blue” feels unexpectedly timely, as police shoot an African-American suspect, then cover up the details. After that, though, this NBC drama becomes extremely familiar, focusing on a cop forced to go undercover, risking detection from her corrupt colleagues. That’s not to say the show is without its strong points — including Ray Liotta, this time playing a wiseguy with a badge — but the star being used to sell it, Jennifer Lopez, while surely representing a promotional coup, feels like as much a distraction as an asset, looking absurdly glamorous regardless of the circumstances.
Lopez’s Harlee is a single mom, who has the misfortune to break into the wrong apartment with an itchy-trigger-fingered rookie (Dayo Okeniyi); he shoots a drug dealer who’s merely playing videogames. She helps obscure what happened, but the guilt gnaws at him, although that plot soon becomes secondary to a larger one. »
