Shades of Blue Premiere Date

Shades of Blue, NBC's Jennifer Lopez Cop Drama, to Launch in January

Beginning in early 2016, it’s Detective Jennifer Lopez to you.

NBC announced Wednesday that its JLo-fronted cop drama Shades of Blue will debut Thursday, Jan. 14 at 9/8c with a special two-hour episode.

Following its super-sized Jan. 14 launch, Shades of Blue — which also stars Ray Liotta and Drea de Matteo — will shift to its regular Thursday-10/9c timeslot on Jan. 21 (replacing The Player).

Shades finds Lopez playing Harlee Santos, a cop at the heart of a tight-knit crew of Brooklyn detectives, led by Lt. Matt Wozniak (Liotta), who often leads the team to step outside the limitations of the law in order to effectively protect their precinct and their own. As a big illegal job looms on the horizon, the FBI catches Harlee in the act and pits her against her own unit. As a newly turned informant, Harlee struggles to safeguard her on-the-job family and avoid arrest in order to stay with her daughter.

Check out the official poster below and then hit the comments with an answer to this question: Is the one-sheet too cheesy, just cheesy enough, or is it screaming for more cheese.
