It's a cop show with a twist. Lifetime's series explores the personal and professional lives of five very different policewomen in San Francisco. "The Division" features action, suspense, crime and cat-and-mouse chases. It also looks at the ups and downs of romance, family, motherhood and female friendships. It's good, old-fashioned drama about working women with real-life problems. Written by
The show is about women police officers in San Francisco. In real-life, many locker rooms for women cops were converted men's rooms. Many cops put plants in the old toilets and urinals, because the fixtures were never removed. In the first season of the show, the locker room for the women was a converted men's room that featured plants in an old urinal stall. See more »
Yeah. Look, we need to go away someplace quiet, where we can just be ourselves and get to the bottom of things.
Why? Look, you know who I am, okay? You know who my family is. Why the hell do you even want to be with me at all?
Because I love you. Look, look, we should go away this weekend, okay?
This weekend is--

I have to say, Lifetime's hit it big with their newest Sunday show. Squeezed between "Strong Medicine", the story of two women working in a hospital and "Any Day Now", the story of two best friends through the years, "The Division" tells about five women whose personal lives are all different, but they're all cops. Bonnie Bedelia is the head honcho; a take-nothing-from-anyone captain, Lisa Vidal stars as a Hispanic inspector and single mom, Tracey Needham as an inspector who's having marital problems, Nancy McKeon (known as Jo to all the "Facts of Life" fans) is an inspector whose personal life is a mess between drinking and men and her family's secrets, and Lela Rochon is an African American inspector whose previous experiences are only working in the mayor's office and not an on-the-street cop.
This show is fantastic, obviously hitting the jackpot for good Lifetime shows - a good, strong show for women to like and relate to. Here's to season 2!
