Storyline

Every villain has a noble cause, and every hero has a dark side. In the gritty new action-drama GANG RELATED, Detective RYAN LOPEZ is a rising star in Los Angeles' elite Gang Task Force. What the world doesn't know is that long before Ryan became a cop, he pledged allegiance to a different band of brothers - a powerful Latino gang called Los Angelicos. When Ryan's best friend and police partner is senselessly killed by a notorious gang member, Ryan teams up with longtime Task Force member CASSIUS GREEN, who has been at the forefront of the city's war on organized crime. In this war between law enforcement and gangs, the series explores how only people who really know the streets can win the battle on the streets. Despite his profession, Ryan is still beholden to the gang's leader, JAVIER ACOSTA, the father figure Ryan has tried to make proud his entire life and the man who masterminded his entry into the police force. It's a secret that has been held for a decade by Ryan, Javier and ... Written by FOX

Character drive, great cast! Awesome show.
2 June 2014 | by darkisthewaySee all my reviews

Gang Related offers tremendous promise; well cast, stylistic in design, emotional and character driven, by the second episode, I was already hooked. The show takes place in Los Angeles, and follows Ryan Lopez, an esteemed detective of a gang task force, struggling to distance himself from his past (and current) connections to a notorious Latino gang. Ryan's story feels very well-crafted, and it's easy to sympathize with his position, being a double agent who truly wants to do the right thing. As a devoted fan of Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad (the later of which is similar in story-line), I think Gang Related could become one of the more stimulating, edgier shows on the Fox network. Some viewers complain about the lack of vulgar language coming from the gang members. I think this is purely idiotic. Yes, we know networks are limited in certain ways, but slighting a show based on lack of profanity says more about the viewer than it does the creators. The show also has a great soundtrack, and the cinematography and set-design is fantastic. But above all, there is a great story to be told, so if you're into that kind of thing, you know, TV shows that actually tell stories and delve into dimensional characters, then give Gang Related a chance.
