The Good Cop: Netflix Sets Premiere Date For Josh Groban, Tony Danza Series

Netflix took Josh Groban's hosting gig at the 2018 Tony Awards as the perfect time to release the first teaser trailer for his upcoming cop series The Good Cop. The show will also feature Tony Danza as his ex-police officer father.

Danza is set to play Tony Sr., a disgraced former NYPD detective who never followed the rules. This is a stark contrast with his live-in son Tony Jr. (Groban), an honest detective who's a big stickler for playing by the book. Tony Sr. decides it's his job to help his son by giving him advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women. 

The 10-episode The Good Cop, which was ordered straight to series in July of 2017, comes from Andy Breckman, the creator of Monk. Experienced TV director Randy Zisk, who has taken on episodes of Bones, Without a Trace, and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, will step behind the camera for the pilot and will also serve as an executive producer.

"Many cop shows feature dark and provocative material: psycho-sexual killers, twisted, grim, flawed detectives," Breckman previously said of the series. "Many address the most controversial issues of the day. I watch a lot of them. God bless 'em all. But the show I want to produce is playful, family-friendly, and a celebration of old-fashioned puzzle-solving."

Netflix also announced the show's premiere date when they released the short, musical trailer, slating it to hit the streamer on Sept. 21. Monica Barbaro (UnREAL), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire), and Bill Kottkamp (American Vandal) also star in the series.
