NBC snags supernatural cop show
The premise of the show? What starts as a normal cop-show takes a "hilariously horrifying" twist when the not-so-super police officers have to face the likes of vampires, mummies and other supernatural ghouls -- return of werewolf man?
Sounds a little, just a little similar to a comedic version of Moonlight, CBS's problem-plagued vampire detective drama. Although the show isn't a direct ripoff -- it seems a little more Police Academy meets Buffy -- it seems mighty coincidental that NBC would snatch up this show after all the free press (albeit negative) that Moonlight has been getting.
I think this show may work if the writing is strong and avoids stale supernatural clichés for as long as possible. One major suggestion, bring in Matt Parkman from Heroes to star. I miss intra-network crossover episodes. Okay, I wasn't alive for most of that.
