LOS ANGELES – Josh Groban is adding the role of police detective to his TV résumé.
Netflix said Wednesday that Groban will play a straight-laced New York City detective on “The Good Cop.”
The actor-singer will star opposite Tony Danza, who plays his father. Danza’s character, a disgraced NYPD officer, is the street-wise adviser to his cautious son.
Groban has appeared in a number of TV series, including “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “The Office.” He made his television debut in 2001 on “Ally McBeal.”
He made his Tony-nominated Broadway debut last year in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.”
Andy Breckman, who created the series “Monk,” is an executive producer for “The Good Cop.”
A release date for the 10-episode comedy-drama series was not announced.
