The poop is about to hit the fan;

2 Episodes
9/13/14 - 9/20/14

EPISODE ONE (9/13/14)

SUMMARY:  In the late 1980s, Franklin Gower is the last good cop in Los Angeles, but he's tormented by the memory is his old partner Wilcox, who died, the report says, in the line of duty.  When he finds that his new partner is Wilcox's daughter, Monica, he is even more conflicted... because the truth he's keeping a secret is that he was forced to kill Wilcox.  And when Laurel goes by herself to investigate Cahuenga, a drug dealer flooding the streets with a new drug called "crack," she proves herself just as crooked as her father, demanding a take from Cahuenga and taking a hit of his new drug.

EPISODE TWO (9/20/14)

SUMMARY:  Monica has a one-night stand with an apparently emotionally devastated Cahuenga, while Frank reminisces about all the things he learned about being a cop from his mentor, the late Larry Wilcox.  Frank finds his marriage to aspiring actress Laurel Gower put on hold when he takes a business call during her talent showcase.  And shadowy CIA agent Bronson turns out to be the one supplying Cahuenga with crack.

Cahuenga struts confidently. Laurel (Erin Holt) prepares for her reading from "Sophie's Choice" at her industry showcase. Down at the station. (L-R: Peter Fluet, Sean Sweeney, Bryan Krasner, Rick Steadman & Alejandra Bursik-Cervantes) The 80s go boom all over Bronson's clothes.
