Storyline

In this series, the LAPD thinks it's a good idea to form a task force partnering actors with homicide detectives. A super meta half hour comedy, the show within a show within a show is as much about Hollywood as it is an action-comedy procedural. Starring Ryan Hansen and Samira Wiley as his strait-laced partner Detective Jessica Mathers, the series features a who's who of stars playing bizarro versions of themselves including Joel McHale, Donald Faison, Eric Christian Olsen, Jon Cryer and Kristen Bell.

If you love comedy and deconstructing tv shows this is for you
27 December 2017 | by julian-343See all my reviews

It is self referential in the extreme, it is so meta it hurts, it rips the pxxx out of tv crime shows and their recurring tropes, it gives some insight into tv show terminology and methods,

I SIMPLY LOVED IT. EAGER FOR THE SECOND SEASON.

Various cameos enhance the show in a similar way to the excellent EXTRAS by Mr Gervais.
