Here's the promo trailer for the TV show I'm working on, The Bridge.

The show synopsis is:

It is the role of the police to protect society - but who is there to protect them? The police union has become powerless against the politically-motivated police department and street cop Frank Leo (Aaron Douglas) is sick of it. By popular vote Frank becomes president of the 8000 strong police union but makes many powerful enemies in the department along the way.

Inspired by the insights of a former police union head, The Bridge lays bare Frank's struggles - he not only battles criminals on the street but sometimes his own bosses and police force corruption, in order to protect his fellow officers and ultimately society.

Right now the show is scheduled to begin airing on CBS in the US and CTV in Canada on Thursday, July 9th at 10:00 and run for 13 weeks.

Thanks. Yes, lots of potential.

In some ways all those bigwigs to please makes some things easier. Maybe it's because I come at this from writing books where I'm pretty much completely on my own, but I find a lot of support and help in the writers' room - I don't know about all TV, but there's a lot of collaboration on this show - and the bigwigs give some pretty clear directions.

Like I said in a previous blog, it can be like writing haiku - there's a lot of structure, but still plenty of room to be creative.
