Series Info

The action in this sitcom, set in Bakersfield, Cal., swirls around a group of oddball cops, including Det. Paul Gigante, who is half-Italian and half-black, which makes him stand out in the community. As if that weren't enough of a challenge, his partner, Wade Preston, is a redneck.


Critics Consensus: Bakersfield P.D. shakes up the buddy-cop formula with clever satire and a whimsical attitude, even if some of the jokes can be a bit suspect.
