Check out the first trailer for the new 'Training Day' TV series
CBS has a new tv series in the works dubbed 'Training Day' and yes, it is based on the classic film which starred Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.
The tv show, a crime thriller, will pick up 15 years later and it features the familiar plot of a young newbie police officer partnering up with a rogue veteran of the LAPD.
However, the roles are reversed as Bill Paxton plays the role of Frank Rourke, a menacing white cop, while Justin Cornwell plays the role of Kyle Craig, a young, black 'by the book' rookie.
From characters' demeanors, to the infamous car and shootouts, it's clear that the 'Training Day' tv show will draw on plenty of cues from the classic film.
Coming soon to CBS, check out the first trailer of 'Training Day' below.
