(KTVI) - A new comic crime series premieres on FOX on Thursday (Jan. 22). Its lead detective is self-destructive, offensive and a bit unorthodox.
Emmy Award nominee Rainn Wilson ("The Office) stars as Det. Everett Backstrom, a brilliant detective who sees the worst in everyone. He leads Portland's Special Crimes Unit made up of an eccentric team of investigators working to solve the city's most sensitive and serious cases.
The show blends humor with serious subject matter. The "Backstrom" series premiere will air at 8 p.m. on FOX 2.
