Functional Police Procedural
19 September 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Gloria Sheppard (Ally Walker) is a single mom of two working as an LAPD detective. Her work partner is Michelle Dulcett (Tisha Campbell-Martin). Her brother Davey Sheppard (Chris Payne Gilbert) is a bit of a mess. He's been staying with her family.

This is a Lifetime show which has some merits. It's a show about two female cops working together. And it's sold as a working woman balancing life and home. It's the same as any other police procedural. There just isn't any thing new here. Ally Walker certainly has the acting chops to lead this show. But it didn't last. I guess it just didn't distinguish itself from all the rest.
