Southland is a drama TV series that was originally aired on NBC and showed for one whole season in 2009. A second season was scheduled to air but got postponed, and then cancelled. After that, TNT bought the rights to Southland and has now aired 5 seasons of the show.
Southland is a drama series about the Los Angeles Police Department and how they live their lives in their crime filled city. The first season is focused mainly on the characters of the series and their life and dramas. Subsequent series aired by TNT are a little bit different. Later episodes try to focus less on characters, and more on crimes and how they are executed. Characters and their situations are still shown, but are not the primary base of the show.
Characters in Southland include Nate Moretta, Chickie Brown, John Cooper, Sammy Bryant, Daniel Salinger, Ben Sherman, Lydia Adams, and Russel Clarke. All of these characters are part of the Los Angeles Police Department in some way or other. The only characters that are not part of the Los Angeles Police Department are usually wives or ex-wives of the other characters, such as Susan Salinger.
Southland is an American drama that man viewers tune into. The show is full of angst, mystery, crime, action, hard subjects, and is generally a dark show. Southland is a good show for action seeking people, individuals interested in Los Angeles, or people interested in crime and how it happens. Southland is sure to be a hit for fans of other crime shows circling the network.
