The Rookie

2018 - Present TV-14 43m 8 33

Starting over isn't easy, especially for John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of joining the LAPD. As their oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from those who see him as just a walking midlife crisis.

The series follows John Nolan, a 40-year-old man who moves from his comfortable small-town life to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being a police officer for the Los Angeles Police Department. He must navigate the dangerous, humorous, unpredictable world of a "young" cop, determined to make his second shot at life count.
