Battle Creek is an American comedy-drama television series created by David Shore and Vince Gilligan which follows the mismatched partnership of a police detective and FBI agent in Battle Creek, Michigan.
The series stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters in a drama about two mismatched law enforcement officers whose polar opposite views of the world and crime-solving breed frustration, disdain, humour and possibly a grudging respect as they clean up the hardscrabble streets of Battle Creek, Michigan.
Det. Russ Agnew, a good but gruff, hard-boiled detective, has his world upended when strikingly handsome, charismatic Special Agent Milton Chamberlain opens an FBI field office at the police station and chooses Russ to be his partner.
Milt's polished sophistication and access to unlimited state-of-the-art equipment is impressive to his new co-workers in the absurdly underfunded department.
As Russ and Milt work long hours together in the economically distressed city of Battle Creek, the question is: will it be Milt's charm and endless supply of high-end resources or Russ's old-fashioned cynicism, guile and deception that prove to be the keys to catching the bad guys in his beloved hometown?
Battle Creek also stars Janet McTeer, Kal Penn, Aubrey Dollar and Edward Fordham, Jr.
David Shore, Vince Gilligan, Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner, Thomas L. Moran, Bryan Singer and Mark Johnson are executive producers for Sony Pictures Television in association with CBS Television Studios.
