The CW has announced that their new original series, Wild Cards, will premiere on Wednesday, January 17, followed by the season 3 premiere of Family Law.
Wild Cards stars Riverdale‘s Vanessa Morgan, and Giacomo Gianniotti, and will feature Beverly Hills, 90210 actor Jason Priestley as Morgan’s father.
Here’s the synopsis of the show:
WILD CARDS is a crime-solving procedural with a comedic twist that follows the unlikely duo of a by-the-book, sardonic cop and a spirited, clever con woman. Cole Ellis (Giacomo Gianniotti) is a demoted detective who has begrudgingly spent the last year on the maritime unit, while Max Mitchell (Vanessa Morgan) has been living a transient life elaborately scamming everyone she meets. But while arrested and being held at the station, Max ends up helping Ellis solve a local crime. The two are offered the opportunity to redeem themselves – Ellis needs to get back to his detective post and Max needs to stay out of jail. The catch? They have to work together, each using their unique skills to solve crimes. For Ellis, that means hard-boiled shoe leather police work; for Max, it means accents, disguises, schemes and generally befriending everyone in sight, while driving Ellis absolutely nuts. The two will have to learn what it means to trust another person and maybe actually become partners.
Season 3 of Family Law also premieres on the 17th, and stars Jewel Staite, Luke Camilleri, Zach Smadu, Miranda Edwards, Thomas Cadrot, Genelle Williams, Ali Liebert, and Victor Garber.
Make sure to check out both shows when they return on January 17, 2024, on The CW!
