Season three will premiere later this year.
This 16-episode order was written by and stars comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Quinn and is executive-produced by Morris S. Levy of MEGA Films, AGI Entertainment's Brian Stern and Lisa Eisenpresser. J.D. Amato is producing and directed all the episodes, which are shot in New York City.
"Cop Show," according to press notes, is a "brave, bold new show that takes on the issues the other cops shows are afraid to deal with. Crime, for one. Also the police. And the legal system. The second and third seasons… continue the show’s take on a fictional behind-the-scenes look at Colin Quinn trying to make an NYC cop drama."
"‘Cop Show’ has gone to a new level this time. A level not thought about since Dante's literary masterpiece," said Quinn in a statement. "‘Cop Show’ is to the cops what ‘The Godfather’ is to the mafia. Most shows get so caught up in trying to entertain, they forget what they're really supposed to be doing." Quinn was recently seen at Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre in his solo show, Colin Quinn The New York Story.
