Steven Bochco (Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue) brings you another bold take on the police procedural genre with the provocative and notorious Cop Rock. Combining the gritty, character-driven drama Bochco fans expect with the pulsating rock and show-stopping grandeur of musical theatre (including songs composed by Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar® winner* Randy Newman), Cop Rock followed the lives of detectives and officers who didn't just walk the beat… but had the slick moves to keep the beat as well!
