Good Cop/Bad Cop: Stan series to shoot in Queensland

The forthcoming comedy drama series follows a sibling detective team who have to contend with each other and their police chief father.

Stan has announced a new eight-part series, Good Cop/Bad Cop, a ‘procedural comedic drama’ from writer John Quaintance (Will & Grace, Workaholics), produced by Jungle Entertainment and Future Shack Entertainment.

Starring Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl, Exmas), Luke Cook (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Clancy Brown (Dexter: New Blood, Billions), the series will begin production in South East Queensland later this month.
​The series, says Stan, ‘follows Lou (Meester) and Henry (Cook), a sister and brother detective team in a small Pacific Northwest police force who must contend with colourful residents, a serious lack of resources, and their very complicated dynamic with each other and their police chief, Big Hank (Brown) – who happens to be their father’.
