Gritty, emotional, darkly humorous and terrifically intense, TRAINING DAY is a reimagining of the ground-breaking film of the same name, beginning 15 years later, and exploring modern-day Los Angeles in all its guts and glory. The LAPD's Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell, EMPIRE) is one of the good guys. A rookie cop bumped up to detective in the elite and elusive Special Investigation Section (S.I.S.), a unit that goes after the worst of the worst, he's been tasked by Deputy Chief Lockhart (Marianne Jean-Baptiste, BLINDSPOT) to expose the corruption of veteran cop Frank Rourke (Bill Paxton, BIG LOVE), a charming but crooked detective – and the head of S.I.S. The morally ambiguous Frank lives by the law of the jungle and he's willing to do whatever it takes to bring down the bad guys, to continue the chase where the law won't. When Kyle learns that Frank was his father’s partner and may be able to help him solve his father's murder, he keeps his judgment at bay. Having Kyle, a politically correct poster boy for the new police order, as his trainee could be beneficial for Frank as they maneuver the streets and track the city's most dangerous offenders. As the bullets fly in the undercover world of S.I.S. with these partners who don't trust each other, the question becomes who's training who? TRAINING DAY also stars Lex Scott Davis (TONI BRAXTON: UNBREAK MY HEART) as Alyse Arredondo, Katrina Law (ARROW) as Rebecca Lee, Drew Van Acker (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) as Tommy Campbell, and Julie Benz (DEXTER) as Holly Butler. Executive producers are Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI), Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), and Jonathan Littman (CSI), alongside writer Will Beall (CASTLE).
