Here he has the streetwise P.I., Eddie Valetik (Cibrian) forced to take on actress Sam Swift (Bilson) who is a Linsdsay Lohan rehab type as his ride-along because he owes his Hollywood agent sister a favor.
Suddenly the two are on a murder investigation with Swift calling in favors from people she met over the eight years when she had a TV show playing, of course, a cop. Even though they are trying to capture one of the most dangerous gangsters in the city, not to fear as Swift is here. Swift quickly overpowers her PI mentor with favors she can call in, and her fix that everything that happens in real life, as real life is but a poor copy of her TV show. Oh, and everyone who pulls a gun out on our intrepid two, suddenly stops to ask, "Is that Sam Swift?"
If you don't expect good writing, if you have no expectation of good acting, if less than mediocre is your pleasure, here's your show. Highlight in dialogue: an upset Swift looking at Valetik and muttering to him that he, "Puts the dick in detective."
If they wanted Lohan, they should have hired her; she can act.
