Cast: Ben McKenzie, Regina King
Genre: Crime, Drama
Few series about police officers have been as realistic and emotionally gripping as the critically acclaimed Southland. Since premiering in 2009, Southland has redefined the police drama with its raw, authentic look at the lives and work of Los Angeles detectives and beat cops. In the final season, Officer John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz – Band of Brothers,A River Runs Through It) a recovering addict, starts to wonder what he has really accomplished after more than 20 years on the force; Officer Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy – Dexter, Public Enemies), a detective-turned-beat cop faces a whole new set of problems from his estranged wife, Tammi; Detective Lydia Adams (Regina King – Ray, Jerry Maguire) meets probably the biggest challenge of her life – becoming a mother; and Officer Ben Sherman's (Ben McKenzie -The O.C.) growing maturity as a cop brings a darker attitude and increased tension between him and his partner, Sammy.
