CBS has found a midseason berth for its cop drama “NYC 22,” which will join the schedule April 15.
The series, which follows six NYPD rookies, will replace “CSI: Miami,” which will have finished its full run of original episodes for the season Sundays at 10 p.m., where it will have “The Good Wife” as a lead-in.
The Eye announced the drama last May when the network unveiled its fall schedule but was in no rush to find a time slot given its primetime lineup has few weak spots. “NYC 22,” which was originally known as “The 2-2,” was one of two series held over, the other being new half-hour “Rob.”
Cast includes Terry Kinney, Adam Goldberg and Leelee Sobieski. Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Richard Price, Ken Sanzel and James Mangold are executive producers of NYC 22 for CBS Television Studios in association with Tribeca Productions.
