The series follows a thirtysomething con man who upon leaving prison assumes the identity of a cellmate and then hides from debtors by toiling for his “new” family’s bail bond business.

As well as Rush Hour, CBS has also placed orders for family man comedy Joe Time, and Super Clyde, which was originally intended to feature Rupert Grint as a fast food worker who comes into money and decides to put it to good use fighting crime. »

(Note: May not be historically accurate.) They waned a bit in the '90s, but then Rush Hour came along and seemed to reinvigorate audience's appetites for mismatched cops coming together to take down a criminal boss.
