TV Tonight reveals more on Nine’s new drama for 2010.
Cops. LAC (Local Area Command) is currently its working title.
The drama will be set at ‘Seaview Local Area Command.’
The series is set to shoot from next May as 13 x 1 episodes. Nine’s ambitious plan is to shoot a second series immediately on the back of the first, no doubt to save on costs. Depending on when the episodes air, it could run the risk of not seeing how the market takes to the show. The second series is hoping to increase the episode order from the first, between 13- 26.
2011 is earmarked as a potential third production block, should it be picked up.
The characters in the series include 2 Academy graduates, one male, 29, one female, 19; a third generation cop who wants to become a detective; an ‘old school’ Senior Sergeant on the cusp of retirement; an early 30s detective who can read human behaviour in an instant; a mid-40s female Inspector with an impeccable work ethic; and a Superintendent who is smart, strategic, and respected by his peers.
