ABC commissioned two new series today, DJ Nash’s “A Million Little Things”, a drama about a group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances, and “The Rookie” starring Nathan Fillion as a 40-something year-old ‘rookie’ in the LAPD.
Starting over isn’t easy, especially for small town guy John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) who, after a life altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being an LAPD officer. As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination, and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.
