The Shield

Breaking the conventions of the cop genre, this popular and critically acclaimed series plays out in the tough, morally ambiguous world of an inner-city Los Angeles police precinct in which the line between good and evil is crossed every day. Michael Chiklis has won Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his portrayal of Detective Vic Mackey, leader of the elite Strike Team, an effective but corrupt cop who operates under his own set of rules. The young precinct head, Capt. David Aceveda (Benito Martinez), doesn't like Mackey's tactics and wants him off the force, but veteran Det. Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder) understands Mackey and knows how to play both sides of the fence. In the fourth season Glenn Close joins an outstanding cast that also features Catherine Dent, Walton Goggins and Michael Jace.
