After all the buzz, and by all I mean a couple of month’s worth the CBS cop drama Golden Boy is coming to primetime. The series which was picked up for series went into full production May of last year. Created by Nicholas Wootton (Chuck, Prison Break.) The New York set show stars Theo James, (Downton Abbey, Bedlam), Kevin Alejandro (True Blood, Ugly Betty) and Chi McBride (Pushing Daises) to name a few. ‘Golde Boy’ is about the rise of Walter William Clark Jr.– who one day becomes the youngest police commissioner in the history of New York City. James known recently as the turk from Downton Abbey has found his match in Alejandro’s Tony character. A member of the force who’s just as ambitious as Walter. Alejandro’s on-screen partner comes in Bonie Somerville’s Deborah McKenzie character; the only female detective in the unit.
