Common Law


A fresh twist on the buddy cop genre, COMMON LAW focuses on two LAPD detectives whose deteriorating partnership has forced them into the most unlikely of scenarios…couple’s therapy. The series stars Michael Ealy (Californication, The Goodwife) as maverick ladies’ man Travis Marks, and Warren Kole (24, The Chicago Code) as methodical former lawyer Wes Mitchell. This homicide squad dream team turned bickering couple is in for a rude awakening (mandated by their Captain) on the therapist’s chair.
