From writer and executive producer Jonathan Lisco comes K-Ville, a heroic police drama set – and filmed – in New Orleans.
Two years after Katrina, parts of the city are still in chaos, but hope has emerged. Battling an upsurge of violence, understaffing of police forces and a lack of crime labs and other facilities, the cops who remain in the New Orleans Police Department have courage to burn and a passion to reclaim and rebuild their city.
Marlin Boulet is a brash, wry, in-your-face veteran of the NOPD’s Felony Action Squad, the specialized unit that targets the most-wanted criminals. Even when his partner deserted him during the storm, Boulet held his post, spending days in the water saving lives and keeping order.
Now, two years later, he’s unapologetic about bending the rules when it comes to collaring bad guys. The stakes are too high, and the city too fragile, for him to do things by the book.
Boulet’s new partner, Trevor Cobb, was a soldier in Afghanistan before joining the NOPD. He’s tough and committed; but if he’s less than comfortable with Boulet’s methods, it’s because he’s harbouring a dark secret.
Cobb has come to New Orleans seeking redemption, but redemption can be dangerous.
Rounding out the crew are wisecracking Jeff 'Glue Boy' Gooden, the team’s comic relief; tough-as-nails Ginger 'Love Tap' LeBeau, the only female on the squad; and Captain James Embry, who wrangles the eclectic personalities of his squad with
equal parts humour and tenacity.
K-Ville, executive-produced by Lisco and Craig Silverstein, is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
