Southland is a crime television series that combines the police drama of NYPD Blue with the grittiness of The Shield. Set in Los Angeles, Southland explores the day-to-day lives of LAPD officers and how they balance work with their personal lives. At the center of Southland is the relationship between John Cooper (The Walking Dead‘s Michael Cudlitz) and Ben Sherman (The O.C.‘s Ben McKenzie). The veteran Cooper is assigned to train rookie Sherman and bring him out into the field for the first time. Sherman’s eyes are opened to the hardships and difficulties of the real world, which causes him to question his future as a cop.

Other characters include Lydia Adams (Regina King), a detective who cares for her mother at home; Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy), an erratic cop with a string of personal issues; and Chickie Brown (Arija Bareikis), an experienced cop with aspirations to become the LAPD’s first female SWAT officer.

CBS Paramount Network Television, Inc.

Chris Rock is one of the most successful comedians in the world. However, the journey to the top wasn’t easy. Rock was bullied and underappreciated as a teenager, but these seminal events shaped him into the success story he would eventually become. These teenage experiences serve as the inspiration for Everybody Hates Chris, the semi-autobiographical sitcom based on Rock’s life.

The series picks up in the 1980s with teenage Chris (Tyler James Williams) and his family – father Julius (Terry Crews), mother Rochelle (Tichina Arnold), younger sister Tonya (Imani Hakim), and younger brother Drew (Tequan Richmond) – move out of the projects into an apartment in Brooklyn’s Bedford–Stuyvesant neighborhood. Rochelle then sends Chris to a predominantly all-white school on the other side of town to get a better education. It’s survival of the fittest as Chris navigates teenage life in junior high with his new classmates and at home with his dysfunctional family.
