Fox greenlights post-Katrina cop drama

foxFox gave the green light to a pilot about cops living and working in post-Katrina New Orleans. It's one of four Katrina-related projects that were being pitched to networks for the next television season, but it's the only one that is moving forward. K-Ville is an hour-long drama that tells the stories of the police officers who stayed behind when the hurricane hit.

Other New Orleans-themed shows include two more cop shows based in the city that ABC passed on, and one called NoLa that NBC passed on even with the possibility that Spike Lee would direct the pilot. It's surprising, really, that K-Ville made the cut because the crisis in New Orleans continues. If nothing else, maybe it will renew the public's interest in that very damaged city.

Wish "Thief" got more of a run.
Andre B was awesome in it, plus Clifton Collins is my wifes cousin so we always enjoy him on screen (although we would really like to see him stop dying. See 187, The Last Castle, Capote, Fortress, etc)
