Veteran L.A.P.D. detective, Mitch Preston (Robert De Niro Meet The Parents), is a man of few words and even less style. But what he lacks in charisma, he makes up for in skill skill that is about to lead to one of the citys biggest ever drug busts. That is until fast-talking slow thinking police patrolman and wannabe actor, Trey Sellars (Eddie Murphy Shrek) manages to botch the entire operation. Furious about the outcome and aggravated by the television crews at the scene, Mitch shoots at a camera. Instantly he becomes a media celebrity and catches the eye of reality TV producer, Chase Renzi (Rene Russo Lethal Weapon 4). Knowing the police need some positive PR she sells the benefits of a crew following Mitch and Trey around to the Chief of Police. He agrees and instead of giving Mitch a suspension, he gives him an ultimatum: do it for the cameras or dont do it at all. Its not going to be pretty but it will be fun, when real cop Mitch is thrown into the unreal world of television complete with phoney people, bad sets and a partner who would rather act a cop than be one! Its Big Brother meets every great buddy cop movie: Lights, camera action and shoot its SHOWTIME.
