ABC, an American TV network, and Global, a Canadian TV network, both announced ( and ) that they will simulcast the Canadian TV series Rookie Blue (formerly known as Copper). In fact, this creation from Tassie Cameron (Flashpoint) will be simulcasted in North America on June 24 at 9 PM on ABC (USA) and Global (Canada).
Rookie Blue follows five young rookie police constables from Toronto. The show is centred on Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym), a young woman who feels like a fraud half the time. She comes from a police family and all she’s ever wanted to be is a cop. A born rescuer, Andy is the soul of the close-knit group of five rookie constables plunged into the high stakes world of big city policing and she's trained by a police constable (Ben Bass) who didn't want to train a rookie in the first place.
Joining Missy Peregrym is Gregory Smith (Everwood) whose character, Dov Epstein, is the thrill-seeker in the group. After spending many years watching Starsky & Hutch as a sickly child sucking on his asthma inhaler, he is now living his dream and is thoroughly jacked to be a cop. Enuka Okuma (24) plays Traci Nash, a girl from a working class family raised in a tough neighbourhood. She is a serious party girl and a single mother, a fact she’s hiding from her colleagues. Travis Milne (My Green House) is Chris Diaz, the police poster boy — handsome, athletic, clean-cut. A good soldier with a surprising temper, Chris follows orders and believes in defending the weak. Charlotte Sullivan (M.V.P.) is Gail Peck, the group’s politico, whose mother is a superintendent next in line to be Chief of Police.
