THEO JAMES, CHI MCBRIDE, KEVIN ALEJANDRO, BONNIE SOMERVILLE, HOLT MCCALLANY AND STELLA MAEVE STAR IN THE SERIES PREMIERE OF "GOLDEN BOY," A NEW DRAMA ABOUT THE METEORIC RISE OF AN AMBITIOUS COP, TUESDAY, FEB. 26 AT 10:00 PM

"Pilot" - As he is interviewed for a story about his career, Walter Clark, Jr. flashes back on his epic journey from homicide detective to the youngest police commissioner in the history of the NYPD, on the series premiere of GOLDEN BOY, Tues., Feb. 26 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

GOLDEN BOY is a drama about the meteoric rise of an ambitious cop who one day will become the youngest police commissioner in the history of New York City, and the high personal and professional cost he pays to achieve it. After only three years as a beat cop, Clark's heroics on the job make him bold enough to ask for and receive the unheard-of promotion to homicide detective, angering some members of his new department who are eager to see him fail. Clark is partnered with and mentored by experienced veteran Detective Don Owen, just two years shy of retirement. Immediately, Clark comes into conflict with First Grade Detective Christian Arroyo, the alpha dog in the squad who's just as ambitious as Clark, but without a moral center. Arroyo's partner is Detective Deborah McKenzie, a tough third-generation cop and the only female detective in the unit. Also on the team is Detective Joe Diaco, well-connected with tremendous resources which Clark might find useful. Though laser-focused on moving up the ladder, Clark's soft spot is serving as the sole caregiver and supporter of his sister, Agnes, a teenager demonstrating increasingly dangerous behavior, whom Clark must serve as much a parent as a brother. Keenly observant and politically savvy, the Golden Boy often bases his career decisions solely on his need to succeed as quickly as possible, and he'll find that his epic journey will be filled with unexpected consequences.

GOLDEN BOY moves to its regular time period of Fridays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on March 8.
