And it seems the prayers of women everywhere have been answered.
Michael Ealy will be starring in an hour-long cop sitcom on our television sets every single week. The actor, who landed the lead role in a developing series called Common Law, will appear on the USA Network alongside Warren Kole.
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Common Law follows partners Travis Marks (Michael Ealy) and Wes Mitchell (Warren Kole), cops on the Los Angeles Police Department’s homicide team who have issues with each other. In an effort to resolve their conflicts, their captain (Jack McGee) sends Wes, a former lawyer with a passion for cars, gardening and his ex-wife, and Travis, a ladies’ man who once served time in juvenile hall, to couples counseling.
Set in Los Angeles, the show has been picked up by USA Network and production is set to begin in New Orleans as early as next month. The script for Common Law originally came from CBS Television Studios and Junction Entertainment.
In a statement, USA co-presidents presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber said:
“When CBS Television Studios sent us the script of Common Law, we immediately fell in love with the writing, the characters and the premise. We’re very lucky to have the Wibberleys, Jon and Craig guiding the process on this show; and with Michael and Warren, we have two stars who bring out the best in each other.”
