From Matt Nix (“Burn Notice”) comes THE GOOD GUYS, a new action comedy about what happens when an old-school cop and a modern-day detective expose the big picture of small crime. Unlike the typical police procedural, the series examines crimes from irreverent angles, employing non-linear storytelling and revealing the good side of some typically bad guys.
DAN STARK (Bradley Whitford, “The West Wing”) was a big-shot Dallas detective. So big, in fact, that he was lauded as an American hero after saving the Governor’s son. Years later, Detective Dan – who has the reputation of being a bit of a wild card – spends most of his time rehashing his glory days. Able to skate by on the heroic deeds of his yesteryear, he is still a semi-active presence on the force and occasionally comes through to solve a petty crime.
Dan’s new partner, JACK BAILEY (Colin Hanks, “Mad Men,” “Roswell”), is an ambitious, by-the-book and overall solid detective, but is sometimes a bit too snarky for his own good. His habit of undermining himself has earned him a dead-end position in the department, stuck solving annoying petty-theft cases that nobody else wants. Worse, he’s been given the thankless task of babysitting Dan, the department pariah who can never keep partners for long. Jack’s only ally is ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY LIZ TRAYNOR (Jenny Wade, “Reaper”), a quick-witted former girlfriend whom Jack hasn’t quite gotten over and the one person he turns to for help.
As Jack and Dan go about their work, the pair consistently break a flurry of department regulations, which reminds their boss, LIEUTENANT ANA RUIZ (Diana Maria Riva, “Castle,” “Our Family Wedding”), why these good guys will be spending many more days in the Property Crimes Division investigating seemingly minor crimes.
THE GOOD GUYS is produced by Fox Television Studios. The series is created, written and executive-produced by Matt Nix. Mikkel Bondesen (“Burn Notice”) also serves as an executive producer. Tim Matheson (“Burn Notice”) directed the pilot.
