From Emmy Award winners John Wells, Ann Biderman and Chris Chulack comes a raw and authentic look at the police unit in Los Angeles. From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of East Los Angeles, "Southland" is a fast-moving drama that will take viewers inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families.

Michael Cudlitz ("A River Runs Through It") plays John Cooper a seasoned Los Angeles cop assigned to train young rookie Ben Sherman (Benjamin McKenzie, "The O.C."). Cooper's honest, no-nonsense approach to the job leaves Sherman questioning whether or not he has what it takes to become a police officer.

Cudlitz and McKenzie are joined by other cast members including Regina King ("Ray," "Jerry Maguire") who plays Detective Lydia Adams. Adams lives with and is the primary caregiver of her mother. Her partner, Detective Russell Clarke (Tom Everett Scott, "Boiler Room") is an unhappily married father of three. Michael McGrady ("The Thin Red Line") plays Detective Daniel "Sal" Salinger. Sal oversees fellow gang detectives Nate Moretta (Kevin Alejandro, "Drive," "Ugly Betty") and Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy, "Alpha Dog"). Arija Bareikis ("Crossing Jordan") plays as patrol officer Chickie Brown, a single mom who dreams of being the first woman accepted into SWAT.

One of the best shows on television ending while so many crap gets renew it. This show was so good this past season, it did not deserve this at all. I'm glad it lasted this long, but I need to know what happens with Cooper, and Ben, and Sammy... i hate life.

'Southland' Star Lucy Liu Talks Upcoming Partner Tensions, Whether She'll Return Next Season And More

ColeFrost (Aug 01, 2011)

Lucy Liu has signed on to guest star in a few episodes. This is a huge grab for a show like this.

ColeFrost (Jul 04, 2011)


Agreed. The first two seasons were shot by NBC, that was the first TNT season. That probably made the difference, with cable opening things up. NBC only cancelled it because they thought it was too gritty for network television, so I'm glad they upped that even more for cable. :)

This is an amazing season, better then the first two imo.
That shooting after the bankrobbery in the first episode of season 3 and ofcourse the last part of episode 4 was epic...
