|Full Show Summary: Southland is a drama series that is said to take a raw look at the chaos that Los Angeles is in the 2000’s. The show follows this chaos and the lives of the LA cops that are trying to contain the chaos and make it better. Southland premiered on NBC in 2009 where it ran until it was picked up by TNT in January 2010 and it still has a home there today as it heads into its 5th season. Southland follows the LAPD police officers as they try to stop the crime that is running rampart in the streets of Los Angeles. The series focused more on the LAPD policemen when it was on NBC, but once it was purchased by TNT the focus shifted to storylines more involving Adams and Sherman and the partners who help them. The reason for the change of network was said to be because the show was too dark for NBC with its realistic crimes and drama. The cast includes a number of police officers such as Officer Chickie Brown, who wants to be on the SWAT team, Detective Sammy Bryant, who lets his problems at home interfere with his job often, and Ben Sherman who in the beginning starts off as a rookie, but seems to become the main focus of the show in later seasons. Rounding out the team, other than minor characters, is Detective Lydia Adams, a dedicated detective that has to juggle a demanding career with parenthood. The series has grown quite a bit over the seasons and has gained quite a following. It is a great mix of a realistic police procedural and a drama series that takes you into the work lives as well as the personal lives of the LAPD detectives and police officers who are just working to keep LA safe.|
