5 Things to Know About NBC's New Ironside
Robert T. Ironside is back on the beat for NBC — but this won't be the same old cop show from the '60s and '70s.
Reimagining the original series that starred Raymond Burr as a paraplegic detective, NBC's new Ironside (premieresWednesday at 10/9c) moves the action from San Francisco to New York and puts Blair Underwood (L.A. Law, Dirty Sexy Money, The Event) in the wheelchair. As Underwood's acerbic Ironside closes cases by any means necessary, he will wrestle with the ghosts of his traumatic past while he tries to continue living and working with his injuries.
