Blair Underwood Breaks All The Rules In First Trailer For 'Ironside'

Here’s your first full trailer for Blair Underwood’s NBC reboot of 1960s/1970s crime drama series Ironside

Here’s the network’s official description of the series:

In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one’s tougher than Detective Robert Ironside. He’s a fearless cop who won’t stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists will do whatever it takes to solve New York’s most difficult and notorious crimes – even if it means breaking the rules. Tough, sexy and acerbic, Ironside’s never been afraid to call it like he sees it. As a detective, his instincts are second to none, and those around him have to stay on their toes if they want to keep up… because when his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, Ironside swore he’d never let a damn wheelchair slow him down.

NBC has officially set the hour-long drama’s time slot for Wednesdays at 10pm. We won’t really know what it’ll be going up against during that hour until we see what all the other networks have on schedule from 10pm – 11pm on Wednesdays.

The cast includes Spencer GrammerBrent SextonPablo SchreiberNeal Bledsoe, and Kenneth Choi.

The series is written and exec produced by Michael Caleo (Rescue MeThe Sopranos), and exec produced by David Semel, Teri WeinbergJohn Davis, and Jon Fox.

The first full 3-minute trailer for the series has surfaced and is embedded below (poster art above):

NBC should have learned from the Ving Rhames Kojak debacle.


I'll watch the first two or three episodes to give the show a chance. I love Blair just like everyone else does.

Blair looks DAMN good. That being said. He does a good job but the supporting cast seems very weak. I know Ill probably get deeply invested in the show once the story builds and they are going to cancel it. But I think Ill take the ride and see where the show goes. Congrats to him.


They only found TWO people of color to cast in NYPD police drama….wow. Pass, Pass F'N…Pass.


It looks ridiculous. Columbo, Starskey and Hutch, Kojak, even Petroceli was better than Ironside IMO. This role looks thankless but I willl give it a watch. Blair Underwood is very underrated.


Love Blair but this looks meh. I'll be passing on this one.
