Memphis Beat

Series Summary
Dwight Hendricks is a quirky police detective in Memphis, Tenn., who enjoys an intimate connection to the city, a deep passion for its blues music scene and a loving relationship with his mother. While his instincts as a detective are never questioned by his demanding new boss, Lt. Tanya Rice, she is bothered by the relaxed manner with which he carries out his duties. It's Dwight's Memphis state of mind, and perhaps once Lt. Rice sees him perform a song or two at his favorite hangout, she'll begin to see things his way, too.

  • Except for the setting, there really isn't much to distinguish Memphis Beat from hundreds of cop shows past and present. As a matter of fact, it's far more like them than it is different. Show More

  • If you're looking for a new cop drama to serve and protect your entertainment interests, leave the rookies alone to ripen, and go for a ride-along with Jason Lee's Dwight. Blue suede shoes not required. Show More

  • While it sounds old hat, the who, what, when, where, why and how of this police procedural doesn't go the usual-suspects route. This show really keeps you guessing. And the soundtrack, by blues singer Keb'Mo, will keep you entranced. Show More
