Sometimes an unlikely pairing makes the best partnership. Get ready for Rush Hour, a reimagining of the blockbuster New Line Cinema film franchise as an all-new television series from executive producers Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Spin City, Cougar Town), Blake McCormick (Cougar Town, King of the Hill), Jeff Ingold (Undateable) and the team behind the Rush Hour movies, Arthur Sarkissian and Brett Ratner.
A high-stakes, action-packed one-hour series featuring the fun buddy-cop dynamic and fast-cracking comedic moments audiences crave, Rush Hour begins when Detective Lee (John Foo), a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police detective, travels to Los Angeles to investigate the theft of Chinese artifacts—and what he believes to be the murder of his sister, Kim (Jessika Van).
Paired up with the irreverent and brash Detective Carter (Justin Hires), a young cop who prefers to work alone, Lee discovers that Kim is very much alive... and rising through the ranks of the tough, organized crime family known as the Quantou.
Now partnered in Los Angeles, these two lone wolves must learn how to work together—all while Lee tries to acclimate to life in the U.S. and extract his sister from the deadly Quantou. Featuring a multicultural, fresh-faced cast which also includes Dexter's Aimee Garcia and established comedy star Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me!), this thrill ride features movie-style fight scenes, edge-of-the-seat exploits and on-point comedy. Get ready for the rush... of Rush Hour.
