Every year, it seems a fresh crop of cop shows are pushed out by the networks. And yeah, normally, they all look the same. But, call us crazy. "Gang Related," the new cops-versus-gangsters series from FOX, looks a bit different. Well, at least, the trailer has piqued our interest. Starring Ramon Rodriguez, RZA, Terry O'Quinn, Sung Kang and Cliff Curtis, the show revolves around an elite gang task force (led by O'Quinn) whose job is to bring down a ruthless gang cartel in Los Angeles. The thing is, the team's number-one ace (Rodriguez) may be working for the bad guys (Curtis). Think "End of Watch" meets "The Departed," which is not a bad combination, if you ask us.
Gritty new fast-paced drama GANG RELATED follows RYAN LOPEZ (Ramon Rodriguez), a rising star in Los Angeles' elite Gang Task Force -- led by SAM CHAPEL (Emmy Award winner Terry O'Quinn) -- who teams up with longtime Task Force member CASSIUS GREEN (RZA) to take on the city's most dangerous gangs, including one he has an allegiance to. The series is from creator/writer Chris Morgan ("Wanted," "Fast Five"), Academy Award-winning executive producer Brian Grazer ("24," "A Beautiful Mind"), director Allen Hughes ("Dead Presidents," "Book of Eli," "Menace II Society") and executive producer/showrunner Scott Rosenbaum ("The Shield").
