Jack is a by-the-book detective whose habit of undermining himself has resulted in a dead-end position with the Police Dept. His partner Dan, a drunken, lecherous veteran hangs onto his job only because of one heroic act years ago.
In a scene in the first episode, Agent Chamberlain and Detective Agnew are talking to some gang members on a street corner. The street sign reads "E. Emmett St.", which actually exists in Battle Creek, Michigan, where the show is set. The tall building in the background however, is not in Battle Creek. See more »
While federal agencies have resident agents in local police departments, the agents perform the tasks of the agencies- such as Secret Service for counterfeiting cases. The FBI does not investigate homicides unless they are of a significant nature, such as a serial killer or murder for hire. See more »
Battle Creek is about a smug FBI agent and an embittered police detective, thrown together in the city of Battle Creek, Michigan.
Battle Creek was an unexpected surprise. It should definitely be listed as a dramedy, which is one of the reasons it is good enough to watch. Who needs another laugh-track laden program written for young people to use as background while they play on your phones or laptops?
The first episode I was confused . .. are they being serious or what? I gave it a second glance and it has turned out to be the ONLY new show that our 20-something daughter will watch with my husband and I. The interactions between the two leads are funny and also poignant at times. Thank you for taking the time to write characters, especially women, who are smart AND funny! Even the love interests are not over-the-top like most prime-time series. Keep up the good work :)
