If you like your police dramas with a little bit of humor, check out "Rookie Blue," ABC's new summer series that follows the lives of five rookie cops who don't always get it right.
"I almost shoot myself. I have to strip search a transsexual. I get stuck with a lady who's about to give birth and is agoraphobic and is afraid to leave her house in the middle of a power outage and all the ambulances are all backed up," says Greg Smith, who plays rookie Dov Epstein.
But he isn't the only rookie who screws up. Missy Peregrym, who plays Andy McNally -- the daughter of a cop, says, "I bust an undercover officer, thinking I'm making the most incredible arrest ever, and I screw up."
"Rookie Blue," which also stars Travis Milne, Charlotte Sullivan, and Enuka Okuma, is not so much a procedural drama, but more character-driven.
"It's not about how to solve the case or all that stuff," Missy says. "It's more of how it affects our character's lives and relationships."
"It's the mess ups and it's the way that it affects you in your personal life," Greg says. "And it's the criminals. They're not like crime bosses or car thieves. They're people that in any other light or on any other day would be good guys. They're just in the wrong place at the wrong time that day so they're very relatable criminals."
"Rookie Blue" airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. on ABC.
