PRODUCTION HAS BEGUN ON ABC'S "DETROIT 1-8-7"

ABC's New Fall Drama Will Air Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m., ET

Production has begun in Detroit on "Detroit 1-8-7," ABC's highly anticipated new drama set to premiere TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), after the "Dancing with the Stars" results show.

What does it take to be a detective in one of America's toughest cities? Follow one homicide unit as Detroit's finest unearth the crisis and revelation, heartbreak and heroism of these inner city cops in this series shot entirely in Detroit, Michigan.

There's the damaged but driven Detective Louis Fitch, a wily homicide vet who is the most respected -- and most misunderstood -- man in the division; Detective Damon Washington, Fitch's new partner, who finds the first day on the job is a trial by fire, complicated by the imminent birth of his first child; Detective Ariana Sanchez, sexy, edgy and beautiful, who has emerged from a rough background to become a rising star in the department; narcotics undercover cop John Stone, a streetwise smooth talker, clever and quick with a smile made for the movies, who is teamed with Sanchez -- a combustible pairing rife with conflict and sexual tension; Sergeant Jesse Longford, a 30-year veteran and sage of the department struggling with his impending retirement from the force and the city he loves, who, together with his partner, Detective Vikram Mahajan -- a fully Americanized son of Indian immigrants -- form an amusing mismatch of experience and enthusiasm, intellect and instinct, old school and new world, but whose combined skills have never encountered a case that couldn't be cleared; and all are headed by Lieutenant Maureen Mason, a strong-willed single mom struggling to balance home and work. The unit works with the primary medical examiner, Dr. Abbey Ward, who has an unusual hobby in her off-hours�roller derby.

The men and women of Detroit Homicide are as smart and tough as they come. They have to be, as they struggle with their own inner demons, using only their sharp sense of humor to keep them grounded while working the neighborhoods of the historic Motor City.

"Detroit 1-8-7" stars Michael Imperioli ("The Sopranos," "Life on Mars") as Detective Louis Fitch, James McDaniel ("NYPD Blue") as Sergeant Jesse Longford, Aisha Hinds ("True Blood") as Lieutenant Maureen Mason, D.J. Cotrona ("Windfall") as Detective John Stone, Jon Michael Hill (Broadway's "Superior Donuts") as Detective Damon Washington, Shaun Majumder ("24,""Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle") as Detective Vikram Mahajan, Natalie Martinez ("Death Race") as Detective Ariana Sanchez, and Erin Cummings ("Mad Men") as Dr. Abbey Ward.

David Zabel ("ER"), Jason Richman ("Swing Vote"), Kevin Hooks ("Prison Break"), David Hoberman ("The Proposal"), and Todd Lieberman ("The Proposal") are executive producers. "Detroit 1-8-7" is a production of ABC Studios.
