It looks like NBC is feeling mighty confident about its upcoming original drama Shades of Blue – and rightly so. The new trailer paints a pretty tense picture thanks to its intriguing premise and powerful cast which includes Jennifer Lopez (who is also executive producer), Ray Liotta, Drea de Matteo, Dayo Okeniyi and Warren Kole.
While NBC had originally planned to premiere the show on January 14, Shades of Blue will now air on January 7, following Heroes Reborn and The Blacklist. The network has recently been ramping up promotions for the series, which will hopefully manage to retain audiences of its predecessors.
Shades of Blue follows Detective Harlee Santos (Lopez), a NYPD detective and single mother who becomes caught up in an FBI anti-corruption probe, and must choose between doing what’s right for her daughter or covering up for her corrupt co-workers. Watch the tense trailer below:
