CBS will launch its new Robert De Niro-produced police drama NYC 22 on Sunday, April 15 at 10/9c.

The series stars Terry Kinney, Adam Goldberg, Leelee Sobieski, Stark Sands, Judy Marte, Harold “House” Moore, Tom Reed and Felix Solis as a mix of NYPD veterans and rookies. While patrolling the gritty streets of upper Manhattan, the newbies must get past their mistakes and learn how to relate to each other, their superiors and the citizens they protect and serve.

Exclusive: Person of Interest Targets Matt Lauria

Jane Rosenthal (the Fockers franchise, The Good Shepherd), Ken Sanzel (Blue Bloods), James Mangold (Knight and Day, Walk the Line) and Richard Price (The Wire) serve as executive producers alongside De Niro.

NYC 22 takes over CSI: Miami‘s time slot, which will have wrapped up its season.

  • Damn, don’t we have enough cop dramas? It’s starting to get really oversaturated. Cop dramas are the new reality shows.

  • I am so sick of Adam Goldberg. Stop giving him projects.

  • Giving Adam Goldberg a part is the kiss of death to any television show.

    • The kiss of death for this show is having The Good Wife as a lead in.

  • Here’s hoping it’s as good as Terry Kinney and Adam Goldberg’s OTHER cop show The Unusuals which was AWESOME.

  • Katie, that’s just what I was thinking. The Unusuals was a great show and had Jeremy Renner and Amber Tamblyn in it. It got canceled too quickly. This show sounds a lot like Blue Bloods, like I think somebody else has mentioned. I guess it’s on the right network, then.

  • I hate reality shows with the firey passion of a thousand burning suns…but I would rather have another reality show on TV that another FRAKIN COP DRAMA!!!!

  • I’m looking forward to the show but feel it’s destined to fail not because it follows Good Wife but because it’s airing opposite GCB on ABC which has “hit” written all over it.
    If CBS wanted to give NYC 22 a fighting chance it would air Tuesdays at 10pm. Under performing Unforgettable could finish out its season Sundays after Wife.

  • This show just screams to me CBS version of Rookie Blue. CBS know that Rookie Blue is a success on ABC and Global in Canada, so they want to basically copy the whole idea of the show, the Rookies and their Training Officers. The Rookie Blue creators must feel flattered that their format of the show is being copied. The show was originally going to be called Rookies, but it looks like they had to change the show name as it was too close to the name Rookie Blue.
    It may be done by Robert De-Niro but i don’t think it will be a success like Rookie Blue is on the ABC summer schedule.

  • YAWN. Another cop show set in NY. This a summer show?

  • Hope NYC 22 won’t survive for a second season. Think it’s time that CBS better stop picking up more crime dramas and let’s hope it will end when the broadcast networks unveil their prime time schedules come May.
