CBS Sets Premiere Date for Robert De Niro-Produced 'NYC 22'
CBS has scheduled its remaining new 2011-12 series, cop drama NYC 22.
The Leelee Sobieski and Adam Goldberg starrer will premiere Sunday, April 15 at 10 p.m., taking over the time slot currently occupied by CSI: Miami, which will have completed its run of original episodes for the season.
Revolving around six NYPD rookies as they patrol the streets of upper Manhattan, the new cops will balance learning on the job with how they relate to their boss, their colleagues and the people they swore to protect.
Richard Price (The Wire) created the series and executive produces alongside Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Ken Sanzel and James Mangold (Walk the Line). Terry Kinney, Stark Sands, Judy Marte, Harold "House" Moore, Tom Reed and Felix Solis co-star.
CBS picked up the series, previously known as The 2-2, in May.
The Good Wife will remain put and serve as the series' lead-in at 9 p.m.
