Genre: Buddy Comedy, Action, Police Procedural

A reimagining of the feature film franchise, Rush Hour is a buddy-cop drama about a maverick LAPD detective and a by-the-book detective from Hong Kong who knock heads when they are forced to partner together.

Detective Carter, on the other hand, is a wisecracking cop who plays by his own rules and has never wanted a partner. But even as cultures clash and tempers flare, Carter and Lee can't deny they make a formidable team, and grudgingly admit that sometimes an unlikely pairing makes for a great partnership.
