In 2001 Rookie cop Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) went under the wing of rogue detective Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington) in the now classic film Training Day. Now, since apparently everything has to get remade, we are getting a TV Spinoff to the classic movie.
The spinoff takes place 15 years after the original. Detective Frank Rourke (Bill Paxton) takes on the rookie cop Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell). Kyle and Frank must find the common balance so they can do whatever it takes to get the streets clean and get the bad guy. From the above trailer, even though it’s for cable television and not a rated R film like the original, it seems to have the same feeling of the film. I doubt the young rookie will smoke PCP thinking it’s weed, but who knows!
Training Day the series premieres February 2 at 10 PM on CBS.
