Set in New Orleans, K-Ville
is a gripping new police drama. Two years after the devistating hurricane Katrina, New Orleans is still in shambles and chaos continues to rule the streets. Criminals roam the city armed with AK-47s, many of the police force has left, and stations, jails, and labs still haven't been rebuilt. The few cops that remain must pool their courage and strength to help bring back law and order to the city they love.
The force includes Marlin Boulet (Anthony Anderson
), a brash veteran of the Felony Action Squad who specializes in tracking down the most-wanted. His partner left after the storm, but Boulet stayed in the city and two years later is still won't hesistate to bend the rules in order to catch a criminal. Boulet's new partner, Trevor Cobb (Cole Hauser
) is a veteran soldier who fought in Afghanistan prior to joining the NOPD. He's committed to his job, but has trouble adjusting to Boulet's method of doing things, mainly due to a dark secret Cobb is keeping.
Also on the force are hot-headed Billy "K9" Faust (Maximiliano Hernandez
), who rarely thinks before he speaks; Jeff "Glue Boy" Gooden (Blake Shields
), the resident comedian; Ginger "Love Tap" LeBeau (Tawny Cypress
), the force's only female who is just as tough as any of the males; and Captain James Embry (John Carroll Lynch
), whose personality blends humor and tenacity in order to keep his small crew together.
In one of the most intriguing series, K-Ville
takes viewers inside the aftermath of Katrina, from the mangled Victorian mansions in the Garden District to the rubble that remains in the hard-hit Lower 9th Ward. In the harsh reality that Katrina left behind, the NOPD must deal with what comes their way as the future of the city they love hangs in the balance.
