TNT Premiere's "SouthLAnd" Season 3 on Jan. 4, 2011


As you guys know, I LOVE cop dramas on TV and some of my favorites are on TNT. One of my faves is coming back on Jan. 4th at 10:00PM/9:00c - the critically acclaimed 3rd season premier of "SouthLAnd" is coming back to TNT.  This is a show that incorporates the city of Los Angeles as a character as much as the actors.  Take a look at this video for a sneak peak of the upcoming season:

As the time-slot indicates, this is definitely an adult drama, with some violence and language, but I love the grittiness and the truthfulness of the series as it tackles some really deep issues both on the streets and in the cast's home lives.  Speaking of the cast, they have really chosen some amazing actors that work tremendously together to form a fabulous ensemble... you will truly by impressed.

Here's what TNT has to say about "SouthLAnd".....

From Emmy Award winners John Wells, Ann Biderman and Chris Chulack comes a raw and authentic look at a police unit in Los Angeles. From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of East Los Angeles, "SouthLAnd" is a fast-moving drama that will take viewers inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families.

Michael Cudlitz ("A River Runs Through It") plays John Cooper a seasoned Los Angeles cop, assigned to train young rookie Ben Sherman (Ben McKenzie, "The O.C."). Cooper's honest, no-nonsense approach to the job leaves Sherman questioning whether or not he has what it takes to become a police officer.

Cudlitz and McKenzie are joined by other cast members, including Regina King ("Ray," "Jerry Maguire"), who plays Detective Lydia Adams. Adams lives with and is the primary caregiver of her mother. Her partner, Detective Russell Clarke (Tom Everett Scott, "Boiler Room") is an unhappily married father of three. Michael McGrady ("The Thin Red Line") plays Detective Daniel "Sal" Salinger. Sal oversees fellow gang detectives Nate Moretta (Kevin Alejandro, "Drive," "Ugly Betty") and Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy, "Alpha Dog"). Arija Bareikis ("Crossing Jordan") plays patrol officer Chickie Brown, a single mom who dreams of being the first woman accepted into SWAT.

So, don't forget to set your DVR's to record every episode of "SouthLAnd" beginning January 4th, I know I am.
