The lives of Police Officers working for the Los Angeles Police Department.
Did You Know?
"Southland" premiered on NBC as the Thursday night, mid-season replacement for ER
(1994), which had ended its long run in the spring of 2009. A critical success, "Southland" was picked up by NBC for the 2009-2010 season. Also in 2009, NBC's agreement with The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
(1992) host Jay Leno
ended and his 11:35 pm time slot was given to Conan O'Brien
, a clause that was a part of O'Brien's contract with the network. In a move to keep O'Brien and Leno, NBC created a new, nightly variety show at 10:00 pm for Leno, resulting in "Southland" losing its Thursday slot. Although "Southland" was tentatively moved to Saturday night at 10:00 pm and was to premiere in October of 2009, NBC canceled the show before it aired. TNT promptly picked it up and made it a part of its lineup of original programming. See more
Throughout the series, real Los Angeles thoroughfares or sections are named (e.g. Rodeo, Florence, Vermont), while scenery is nowhere near the real life locations. Even fictitious addresses aren't within the range seen on the real street (e.g. 1024 Rodeo Rd. can't exist on a street that only goes as far east as the 2000 West block). See more
