Watch The Trailer For “Smart, “Sexy” New Cop Drama King

A trailer for new Canadian crime drama import King has been released by Universal Channel.

Directed by Clark Johnson (The Wire, S.W.A.T.), the show will star Amy Price-Francis as a “smart, sexy, funnyâ€? detective, Jessica King.

We meet King in the dreary depths of a call-centre basement – her career in tatters. After exposing corruption in the highest level of police ranks almost two years ago, the “ambitious loudmouthâ€? was promptly demoted and now has a chip the size of a comedy cop doughnut on her shoulder.

But after a high profile case goes pear-shaped, King is called on to head up the Major Crimes Task Force new unit…

…and trim a few oversized male egos down to size.

Already a hit on Showcase in the US, King will debut on British TV on Universal Channel, Thursday 5 April at 10pm.

It just so happens that OTB will be talking to the Queen of King, Amy P-F (24, Californication), next week so watch out for that. In the meantime, check out the aforementioned foxy trailer from Universal:
