Meet Officer Michael Taylor, a good looking, smart, and streetwise cop with the Oakland Police Department. As he prepares for his detectives’ exam, Michael is called to the scene of a possible domestic disturbance but what he finds there is beyond a small quarrel. The case is passed on to a detective in the department and Michael returns to his beat, content not to have to deal with the messy case. When Michael is mistaken for the detective on the case thanks to an erroneous news article, he is thrust into the investigation despite his protests. Then a cryptic phone call puts him in the middle of the action and his legacy with the PD begins.
