Official Details Released For NBC’s Ironside Starring Blair Underwood
Ironside, an all new series starring Blair Underwood, is heading to the silver screen Wednesdays, beginning October 2nd, on NBC. With Black females like Kerry Washington and Nicole Beharie lighting up the small screen, its time a Black man joined the ranks as a prime time tv lead. Blair Underwood stars as New York’s toughest cop, Robert Ironside, who just so happens to be confined to a wheelchair. Here’s the official show synopsis from NBC:
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.
