Will Southland be different on TNT from what it was on NBC?
Aside from obvious changes like basic cable's less restrictive profanity guidelines, the raw cop drama is still very much the show that NBC canceled before its second season even began. TNT is running the six episodes already produced for NBC.
"The show now has a chance to sink or swim on its own merits and not based on some seemingly arbitrary business decision," Michael Cudlitz tells TVGuide.com. "If people watch the show, we will survive. If they don't, we won't."
The show continues to provide a riveting ride-along look at the dangerous aspects of law enforcement in Los Angeles.
"Violence is everywhere," creator and executive producer Ann Biderman says. "And it isn't always perfectly orchestrated the way it's shown [on TV], where people hold the gun sideways, and there are these magnificent shootouts, and the good guys win. Violence is everywhere and that's very much in keeping with the way we show violence on the show. It's not perfectly orchestrated; it's messy, and it comes when you least expect it. I think philosophically and dramatically it's organic to the way we tell stories."
