The Rookie is inspired by a true story. Nathan Fillion plays John Nolan, the oldest rookie in the LAPD. At an age where most are at the peak of their career, Nolan cast aside his comfortable, small town life and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a cop. Now, surrounded by rookies twenty years his junior, Nolan must navigate the dangerous, humorous and unpredictable world of a “young” cop, determined to make his second shot at life count.
Who says our protectors don't have problems too. some of these cops are worse than criminals (Graceland) (Chicago PD) (Gang Related) and some of them deal with forces we can't understand (supernatural)(Lost Girl) (Beauty and the Beast). but there are those that are in a league of there own (the mentalist) (castle) (psych) (the closer). and those with amazing intellect (elementary) (bones) (scorpion) the one thing they all agree on is people are capable of anything given motive and opportunity. and all they have to do is PROVE IT!!
