GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.-- This morning, actors Blair Underwood and Spencer Grammer joined us from California with a preview of their new series, "Ironside".
The series is a reimagining of the titular character made famous by Raymond Burr in the 1960s and 70s.
In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one's tougher than Det. Robert Ironside (Underwood). He is fearless; his instincts are second to none, and those around him must stay on their toes if they want to keep up. When his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, he swore he'd never let a wheelchair slow him down.
Ironside and his trusted, handpicked team of detectives each offer a unique background, perspective and skill set. Comprising the team are: Virgil (Pablo Schreiber, "The Wire"), a man who wrestles with the dichotomy of being one of NYPD's toughest cops in the city, yet a loving family man at home where he imparts life lessons to his children that he does not necessarily follow in the line of duty; Holly (Grammer), a strong, feisty detective who loves the rush of being undercover and the danger that goes with the job and who has mysterious family ties to the Brooklyn underworld; and Teddy (Neal Bledsoe, "Smash,"), a rich, highly-educated young cop who has never been good with authority and is connected in a way that only those born into wealth enjoy. Their boss, Capt. Ed Rollins (Kenneth Choi, "Sons of Anarchy"), calm and pragmatic, handles situations with a level head and cool demeanor. He and Ironside share a mutual respect and admiration for each other despite their push-pull relationship.
"Ironside" premieres this Wednesday, October 2, at 9 p.m. on KARE 11. For details and to watch a full episode preview online, click here.
