On September 21, 2018, TV’s most beloved Tony returns when The Good Cop, a new 10-episode, one-hour dramedy series starring Tony Danza as a former cop, with Josh Groban as his currently-a-cop son, launches on Netflix.
In The Good Cop, Tony Danza plays Tony Sr., a lovable yet not exactly honorable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., played by Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules while solving Brooklyn’s toughest cases. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice. Also joining the cast are Monica Barbaro, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Bill Kottkamp.
Andy Breckman, the creator of Monk, serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Randy Zisk (Bones, Monk), and Howard Klein (The Office, The Mindy Project) also serving as executive producers. Tony Danza is a producer on The Good Cop. The series is inspired by a format from Israeli production company YES, who also serve as executive producers. The Good Cop is a Netflix original production.
