Josh Groban has signed on to star opposite Tony Danza in the upcoming Netflix series “The Good Cop,” Variety has learned.
Groban will play the role of Tony Jr., an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. Tony Jr. is son to Tony Sr. (Danza), a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. They become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.
Andy Breckman, the creator of “Monk,” serves as showrunner and executive producer. Randy Zisk and Howard Klein also serve as executive producers. Danza serves as a producer. Netflix has ordered a 10-episode first season of the one-hour dramedy.
Groban is an internationally renowned singer and songwriter. He has sold over 30 million albums during his career and is the only artist who has had two albums appear on the Top 20 Best-Selling Albums list of the past decade,
according to Billboard.
