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

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!
