In The Good Cop, Danza plays Tony Sr., a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.

Andy Breckman, the creator of Monk, will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Randy Zisk (Bones, Monk), and Howard Klein (The Office, The Mindy Project) also serving as executive producers. Zisk will also direct the first episode.

“We’re excited to bring viewers the return of Tony Danza, one of television’s most beloved icons,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “‘The Good Cop’ is a funny, charming procedural series that we think our members will love.”

“Many cop shows feature dark and provocative material: psycho-sexual killers, twisted, grim, flawed detectives,” adds Breckman. “Many address the most controversial issues of the day. I watch a lot of them. God bless ’em all. But the show I want to produce is playful, family-friendly, and a celebration of old-fashioned puzzle-solving.”

Tony Danza also serves as producer on The Good Cop. Danza lives in New York, where he has a special real life connection to the NYPD as a member of the board of directors for the NYPD Police Athletic League and is an active champion of their Teen Acting Program.

The Good Cop series is inspired by a format from Israeli production company YES, who will also serve as executive producers. The Good Cop is a Netflix original production.
