The Commish

19924 Seasons16+
Michael Chiklis stars as Tony Scali, an ex-Brooklyn cop, now the police commissioner of a small upstate city. He's a tough, compassionate boss, a loving husband and a hands-on law enforcer with a reputation for bending the rules. From parenthood to politics, from sex crimes to murder cases, he takes it day to day with offbeat humor and street-smart skills.
