US drama Detroit 1-8-7 will be scheduled by Seven shortly.
The crime drama series about Detroit’s homicide unit with “187” being a common policing code for homicide.
“The men and women of Detroit Homicide are as smart and tough as they come. They have to be, working the neighborhoods of the once and future Motor City,” says the ABC website.
The show stars Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Jon Michael Hill, James McDaniel (NYPD Blue), Aisha Hinds (True Blood), Natalie Martinez, D.J. Cotrona and Shaun Majumder.
The show received almost universally positive reviews in the US where it has averaged 8.8m viewers.
The show will be the first new US drama Seven has unveiled in 2011.
Don’t be surprised if this one takes the slot of some Aussie homicide cops soon….
