Benjamin McKenzie’s Cop Show ‘Southland’ Replaces ‘ER’

Well hello there, Officer Young N. Brooding.

O.C. star Benjamin McKenzie is all grown up and enforcing the law and stuff. His new show, Southland, has the tween starring as a police officer and the series will be taking the place of longtime series ER.

The drama will focus on a police unit in downtown Los Angeles, specifically centering on McKenzie’s character. And yes, it will be a gritty crime drama, but we’re guessing there will be plenty of opportunity for Benjamin to get all TV heartthrob on us.
