Official Trailer for TRAINING DAY (on CBS)
WHAT-IS: "Based on the hit feature film, this crime thriller begins 15 years later when an idealistic young police officer is appointed to an elite squad of the LAPD and he is partnered with a seasoned yet morally ambiguous detective. Starring Bill Paxton and Justin Cornwell, Training Day. Coming soon to CBS."
I have extremely fond memories of the Antoine Fuqua-directed feature film, starring Denzel Washington (the seasoned pro) and Ethan Hawke (the newbie) seen in the pic above, and had always felt the story neatly ended in the 2001 film … now it might be interesting to see how that premise can stretch out over more weekly episodes, set against a perpetual twilight color filter, and a "switch" in ethnicities of the characters (seen in pic below).
