NBC has inked a deal with Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio to star in new cop drama series, Blue Tilt.

The series will follow two seasoned homicide detectives - one married and one divorced - as they solve cases while dealing with their wives/ex-wives and kids. The title Blue Tilt refers to a cop term for homicide detectives who, as a result of dealing with particularly brutal crimes, become a danger to themselves and are put under psychiatric observation. The project will be produced by Universal Television.

Production starts by the end of this year in New York, hometown to both actors.
