Anyone can tell you that Antoine Fuqua’s “Training Day” starring Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke is a classic film. 15 years later, that classic is becoming a tv series and the first trailer has just been released.
The pilot that was supposed to be directed by Fuqua before he has to drop out due to a scheduling conflict was picked up in February.
In the film that we all know and love, Hawke, played the white rookie cop who had a hell of a first day being “trained” by Washington, veteran black cop who handles his business of the books. In the series, the roles are reversed. Bill Paxton will play the white veteran cop while Justin Cornwell plays the black LAPD rookie cop.
Hopefully the series lives up to the film.
Watch the trailer below.
