In this gritty character-driven drama from Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Everwood) and Emmy winner Nicholas Wootton (Chuck, NYPD Blue), a young, ambitious police officer (Theo James Underworld: Awakening) rises quickly within the New York Police Department perhaps through questionable methods after becoming a celebrated hero in the line of duty. As the series begins, Walter William Clark Jr. (James) barters becoming a detective with one of the premier homicide task forces. A product of the streets, Clark will do anything to keep from going back, just as hell take any risk to crack a case even if its against the law. His off-the-cuff methods make his partner, Detective Owen (Chi McBride Human Target, Boston Public), nervous, and they dont sit well with Detective Arroyo (Kevin Alejandro True Blood), whose bald ambition is hard to ignore. There are good guys and bad guys but what does it take to be a golden boy?
