About the Show

"Common Law" is about two cops with a problem -- each other. Despite their differences, they are two incredible detectives. When things come to a head during their "seven-year itch," their captain forces them into couples' therapy to save their "work marriage" and the one thing they both love -- law enforcement.

Travis Marks (Michael Ealy) and Wes Mitchell (Warren Kole) are two partners who -- apart from their polarity and odd couple behavior -- have a seven-year track record as the Los Angeles Police Department's best detectives in the Robbery-Homicide Division. Since their constant bickering is interfering with work, their New-Age Captain Phil Sutton (Jack McGee) -- who found that counseling changed his life -- sends them to couples' therapy. Dr. Ryan (Sonya Walger), a tough-as-nails therapist, tries to help them understand and resolve their conflicts as they confront their demons to enhance their ability to work together solving crimes.

As Dr. Ryan explores their relationship, audiences discover that these two are birds of a feather professionally -- and their personal differences actually balance them out. Wes is a former lawyer whose sensitivity to an event in his life sparked his desire to become a cop and he sacrificed his marriage to do so. He sees things in black and white, is responsible, compulsively organized, methodical and often over thinks decisions. Conversely, Travis is a former juvenile delinquent and maverick ladies' man who was has a fear of abandonment, commitment and intimacy. While he's an open book and deeply trusts his gut instincts, he's carefree, irresponsible, disorganized and doesn't play by the rules.

Viewers soon learn that a successful relationship or partnership doesn't mean you have to like the same things; you just have to hate the same things and sometimes that makes for a stronger union.

"Common Law" is from CBS Television Studios and Junction Entertainment, and is executive-produced and written by Cormac Wibberley and Marianne Wibberley. Jon Turteltaub and Craig Sweeny are executive producers. Dan Shotz and Karim Zreik of Junction Entertainment serve as co-executive producers.
