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. »
