New On CBS Primetime, 'Battle Creek'

Joining the Sunday night line up on CBS is “Battle Creek,” a Vince Gilligan-produced (“Breaking Bad”) drama, that follows two mismatched law enforcement officers with polar opposite views of the world and crime-solving.

The duo’s emotions range from frustration to humor and play out as they clean up the rough streets of Battle Creek, Michigan. When Special Agent Milton Chamberlain, played by Josh Duhamel, opens a new FBI field office at Battle Creek’s police station, Dt. Russ Agnew, played by Dean Winters, he finds his world flipped upside down.

It isn’t long before charismatic Agent Chamberlain chooses Dt. Agnew to be his partner and brings an arsenal of state-of-the-art equipment to the underfunded police station, run by fellow law enforcement Commander Guziewicz, played by Janet McTeer, and Dt. White, played by Kal Penn. Agent Chamberlain seems like the perfect solution, but will his charm be enough?

It is written as quirky,” two-time Academy Award nominee Janet McTeer says of the show. “And quirky is always a weird word.  Does it mean cute?  Does it mean coming at something from a slightly different angle?  I would like to think that it’s all of the above, but not cute.

“Battle Creek” stars Josh Duhamel as Agent Chamberlain, Dean Winters as Dt. Agnew, Janet McTeer as Commander Guziewicz and Kal Penn as Dt. White.

Catch the premiere episode on CBS, March 1st at 10pm ET/PT.
