The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan joins Scott Foley in a wacky, jam-packed first look at ABC's Whiskey Cavalier
An idea from Dave Hemingson, the dramedy titled "Whiskey Cavalier" follows the adventures of Will Chase, an FBI operative and CIA agent Frankie Trowbridge
Adding the much-needed spirit to the regular cop dramas on TV is ABC's upcoming series, which stars The Walking Dead's OG star Lauren opposite Scott Foley. A product by Dave Hemingson, the dramedy titled "Whiskey Cavalier" follows the adventures (rather misadventures) of Will Chase - who is better known in his FBI circles as 'Whiskey Cavalier' - and CIA agent Francesca "Frankie" Trowbridge.
Together, the two agents make for a great pair with their combined eccentricities bringing in as much sass as skills, much required for the two to navigate through their usual day filled with crime, romance, and brewing office politics.
However, Will is not your run-of-the-mill cop. He is as tough as he is tender. Indeed, when he first comes across Frankie, for an inter-agency team-up, it's not a smooth interaction altogether. Not only is he deceived by the badass CIA operative, but also his target is compromised - and all because he was too gullible to give in to some emotional chit-chat with Frankie.
After all, our soft-hearted FBI hero seems to be battling a heartbreak of his own - he and his fiancee recently parted ways and somehow the information seems to be a public knowledge.
"This is the FBI, there are no private moments," Will is told during a confrontation in a first-look teaser, which was recently unveiled by the network.
From that moment onwards though, the 3-minute something clip is one jam-packed sequence of scenes, replete with kickass action, a great deal of running down on the streets, flying bullets and much more. One look at the trailer and the dysfunctional yet insane chemistry between the leading agents is evident.
They might not be each other's first choice for a professional (and maybe, eventually, romantic) partnership, but their energy, together, makes for a high-octane watch.
Asides from leading duo Cohan (Frankie) and Foley (Will), Whiskey Cavalier also stars Ana Ortiz as Susan Sampson, Tyler James Williams as Edgar Standish, and Vir Das as Jai Datta.
The dramedy executive-produced by Hemingson, Bill Lawrence, and Jeff Ingold, is yet to be slated for a premiere.
