One of the mid-season shows that I have been waiting for, is CTV and CBS’ Golden Boy which premieres tonight. The show focuses on the fast rise of Walter William Clark, Jr. (played by Theo James). After only seven years in the NYPD, Clark, Jr. has been named the City of New York’s Police Commissioner. The 34-year old has ascended to the position faster than any cop on record to become the youngest Police Commissioner in the 170-year history of the department.
Walter’s partner on the show is Detective Don Owens (played by Chi McBride). As Clark, Jr. is the youngest homicide detective by a decade, he has been partnered with Owens because of the latter’s seniority.
At CTV’s upfront presentation last year, I had the chance to catch up with Chi McBride to discuss Golden Boy and his new character.
Check it out!
The series premiere of Golden Boy airs tonight on CTV and CBS at 10 p.m. and airs next week in the same timeslot before settling into its permanent position on Fridays
