Lincoln Heights is a family drama about the Sutton family who moved to Lincoln Heights in order to take advantage of the police department’s incentive program for cops willing to live in dangerous neighbourhoods they patrol, in return for affordable home ownership.
The Sutton family is thrown for a loop when Eddie Sutton, an ambitious police officer, decides to move his wife and three kids to the inner-city neighbourhood where he was raised.
With hopes of cleaning it up and making a difference, Eddie convinces his wife Jenn and their kids to give the move a chance.
But when the neighbourhood proves to be uninviting and dangerous, Eddie finds himself constantly second guessing whether his decision was a selfish one.
Though the neighbourhood is filled with drugs, gang violence and crime, together the Suttons deal with the trials and tribulations of living in the inner-city.
