Who's in it and where youve seen them: From living out loud in Thelma and Louise to softball phenom in A League of Their Own, to the president of the United States in ABCs Commander in Chief, Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis has range to spare. You'll recognize sidekick and police partner Rosie Perez's unforgettable voice from "Do the Right Thing" and "White Men Can't Jump."
Whos behind it: CBS and writer Michael Nankin, whose credits include writing for Chicago Hope and directing Battlestar Galactica. The rewrite falls to Jeff Bell, a writer on Alias, Angel and The X-Files.
Why youll watch: Geena Davis. Shes tall, shes commanding, and we cant wait to see what her quirky New York City homicide detective/single mom character will do.
