Picked Up To Series

GANG RELATED, a gritty new action drama, follows Ryan Lopez (Ramon Rodriguez), a rising star in Los Angeles’ elite Gang Task Force – led by SAM CHAPEL (Emmy Award winner Terry O’Quinn) — who teams up with longtime Task Force member CASSIUS GREEN (RZA) to take on three of the city’s most dangerous gangs, including one he has ties to.GANG RELATED is from Chris Morgan Productions, Skeeter Rosenbaum Productions, Imagine Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Chris Morgan (“Wanted,” “Fast Five”). The series is executive-produced by Morgan, Scott Rosenbaum (“The Shield,” “Chuck”), Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer (“24,” “A Beautiful Mind”) and Francie Calfo (“The Great Escape,” “The Playboy Club”). Allen Hughes (“Dead Presidents,” “Book of Eli,” “Menace II Society”) directed and served as an executive producer on the pilot.
I hope this works out better for Terry than 666 Park Avenue did. Can't wait to see a trailer.
Does this affect Terry's return to Five-O?
I'm sure this had a different log line when it was first announced. At any rate it soiund promising and O'Quinn is a huge plus, perfect role for him.
O'Quinn's really in fighting shape for a dude that's closing in on, if not over age 60.

Behind the Scenes:
This looks badass, RZA is right, the action does look movie caliber. I'm also glad to see the story of the Ryan character being a plant has been kept, it is the neat part of the hook.
Now this,this is what I can get into.
This show has made RZA more awesome than he already is.
I like what I see so far in the trailer, although the part about Ramon Rodriguez' character being connected to the drug kingpin seems very similar to Fox's failed Mob Doctor. Hope they go a different route with that connection.

If Fox does pair it with 24, then I could see it succeeding. It'd bring in 24's original fans to possibly tune in and both shows seem to complement one another with their similar tones and action scale.
The lead character having a connection to a crime lord isn't what was the problem with Mob Doctor, though. The show being a complete bore and having an uninteresting lead was the problem. :o
TVLine has learned exclusively that Catherine Dent (The Shield) will recur on Gang Related, Fox’s new midseason cop drama. Gang Related centers on Ryan Lopez (Charlie’s Angels‘ Ramon Rodriguez), a rising star in Los Angeles’ elite Gang Task Force who once belonged to a powerful Latino gang. Dent joins as District Attorney Ellis, the straight-talking but likeable boss of Shantel VanSanten’s Jessica. What’s more, she’s not a fan of Jessica’s father, played by Terry O’Quinn (Lost). Gang Related bows this spring.
I think it's supposed to be paired with 24. So... May. :csad:
No one saw the pilot? I thought it was actually really good for a network drama. Was impressed. A very 'The Departed' kinda plot. I can't be the only one who saw this. The only thing I didn't get was Ryan, the cop, sending texts directly to the boss on his phone. That seems very sloppy for someone trying to be an undercover mole. Anyway I'm hoping it sticks around (but if the deadness of this thread is reflected in its ratings, it probably won't :o ).

The pilot was pretty good, the action was well shot for TV and had a real zip to it. Not surer if people will stick around long enough to see the lead characters journey take a turn in the right direction, I get the feeling his adopted brother that is supposed to be squeaky clean will turn out to be the opposite.

Sniper/Taser chick was hot!
Wait, did this already air? Or is it online/on demand?
loved the first episode.
I haven't seen this yet but I'm curious.

The only thing that's putting me off is RZA. How's he in it?
How are people seeing this already? Is it airing first in other countries before the US premiere?
