EW.com has a first look at USA’s new buddy cop series Common Law. The show follows former petty criminal and ladies man Travis Marks (Michael Ealy) and methodical ex-lawyer Wes Mitchell (Warren Kole), two acclaimed LAPD homicide detectives whose longtime partnership, like a bad marriage, is on the rocks. So their captain (Jack McGee) sends them to couples therapist Dr. Ryan (Sonya Walger) to help them work out their issues. Common Law is currently shooting in Louisiana with an aim toward a premiere early next year. Here’s the show’s first trailer:
