NBC has released the official trailer for the revamped police procedural, Ironside, as part of their recently unveiled 2013-2014 line-up.
The original, which ran from 1967 to 1975, starred as a San Franciscan cop paralyzed by a sniper's bullet and confined to a wheelchair, forced to solve crimes using his wits.
This new Ironside () who is both black and disabled, (deal with it, establishment) is described as "tough, sexy and acerbic", meaning Ironside will prove all over again that everyone's equal, especially when they star in this show:
Huh. One of the scenes seems strangely similar to the "shoot the hostage" part from Speed where shoots fellow cop in the leg...
This trailer does a great job of setting up the plot of the series and Underwood's character but whether it has the staying power remains to be seen.
What did you think of the Ironside trailer?
