The show centers on Officer Terry Muldoon (Burns), who is determined to raise his sons to be honest and hardworking as he deals with the city's dark underbelly.

Rapaport plays Muldoon's partner, Charlie Bullman, the muscle of the Public Morals Division, and Masucci is Christine, Muldoon's wife. The cast also includes Ruben Santiago-Hudson ("Castle," "Low Winter Sun") as Lt. King; Wass M. Stevens ("House of Cards," "The Wrestler") as Vince Latucci; Keith Nobbs ("In Plain Sight," "The Pacific") as Pat Duffy; Austin Stowell ("The Secret Life of an American Teenager," "Behind the Candelabra") as Sean O'Bannon; Patrick Murney ("Person of Interest," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit") as Petey "Mac" McKenna; Katrina Bowden ("30 Rock," "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil") as Fortune; Lyndon Smith ("Parenthood," "90210") as Deirdre; and Brian Wiles ("Person of Interest") as Jimmy Shea.
