About this show

Battle Creek stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters in a drama about two mismatched law enforcement officers whose polar opposite views of the world and crime-solving breed frustration, disdain, humor and possibly a grudging respect as they clean up the hardscrabble streets of Battle Creek, Mich. Det. Russ Agnew, a good but gruff, hard-boiled detective, has his world upended when strikingly handsome, charismatic Special Agent Milton Chamberlain opens an FBI field office at the police station and chooses Russ to be his partner. Milt's polished sophistication and access to unlimited state-of-the-art equipment is impressive to his new co-workers in the absurdly underfunded department. As Russ and Milt work long hours together in the economically distressed city of Battle Creek, the question is: will it be Milt's charm and endless supply of high-end resources or Russ's old-fashioned cynicism, guile and deception that prove to be the keys to catching the bad guys in his beloved hometown?

Wow, Happy to see Dean Winters to Finally have his own Show. Seen him on others Shows like (Law and Order SVU) and ( Insurance Commercials as Characterized as Mayhem). Playing alongside Josh Duhamel who has been in Lots of Movies like (A Date with Tad Hamilton and Others). I Think this is a Game Changer, and this Show will pickup with Time. But, Everything right now is New and Fresh. I Like it so far. And, did Purchase the Full Season. Waiting for more Action and I Realize that this is stated as a Drama. But, I know there's more to this Story that meets the Eye. I'am very Happy for Dean Winters this is a step in the right direction for him.

Seriously hello network idiots it takes time to get people to fall in love with a show all high rating show that have been on for many years ratings sucked for the first couple season's! It takes at least 2 or 3 season's to get people really hooked on a show . It's almost impossible to get people to understand the story line fully with one season and most shows killed recently were instantly canceled after less then 10episodes? Thats in no way enough time to decide if a show is good or not! Its f'd up!

Best detective TV show. Solid stories accommodated with perfect fitted actors. To bad it didn't brake thru the massive amounts of all the half decent shows.
