Got room in your schedule for a gritty cop drama with morally complex characters and a slew of famous faces?

Then you could do worse than check out tonight’s premiere of Shades of Blue, the new Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta-starring drama from Adi Hasak (Generation Kill).

The series (of which we’ve previewed several episodes sent our way from NBC already) centers on Harlee Santos, a tough as nails Brooklyn detective whose unit, led by Ray Liotta’s Lt. Matt Wozniak, regularly bends the rules in order to keep the streets of New York safe.

However when Woz’s under-the-table operations arouse suspicion from the FBI, Harlee soon finds herself coerced into the role of informant by FBI handler Special Agent Stahl (Warren Kole), who begins to develops an unhealthy obsession with her.

Add to this Woz’s realization that there is an unknown ‘rat’ in his unit and Harlee soon finds herself in a perilous dance as she struggles to safeguard her unit, keep the FBI at bay, stay loyal to father-figure Woz, and protect her daughter.

Shades of Blue also stars Drea de Matteo (Sopranos), Dayo Okeniyi (Hunger Games), Vincent Laresca (The Aviator), Hampton Fluker (Aquarius), and Sarah Jeffery (Wayward Pines).

Santino Fontana (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) is also a recurring guest star.

The series premieres Thursday January 7 (10:00 – 11:00 pm ET) on NBC.
