Netflix has given a straight-to-series order on THE GOOD COP, a dramedy crime procedural starring Tony Danza. The 10-episodes series is inspired by a format from Israeli production company Yes. It hails from Monk creator/executive producer Andy Breckman and director/executive producer Randy Zisk.

Written by Breckman who will also serve as show runner, THE GOOD COP centers on Tony Sr. (Danza), a disgraced former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly cautious son blunt, streetwise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.

Breckman, Zisk and 3 Arts’ Howard Klein executive produce alongside Yes, with Zisk set to direct the first episode.

Cindy Holland, VP Original Content for Netflix said:

“We’re excited to bring viewers the return of Tony Danza, one of television’s most beloved icons. THE GOOD COP is a funny, charming procedural series that we think our members will love.”

THE GOOD COP will follow in the footsteps of MONK as a comedic crime procedural.

Breckman said:

“Many cop shows feature dark and provocative material: psycho-sexual killers; twisted, grim, flawed detectives. many address the most controversial issues of the day. I watch a lot of them. God bless ’em all. But the show I want to produce is playful, family-friendly and a celebration of old-fashioned puzzle solving.”

For his role, New Yorker Danza will be able to draw on his real-life connection to the NYPD as a member of the board of directors for the its Police Athletic League.

Production is slated to begin in New York later this year.
