This serial drama is the daily reality of Sid Burnett, a Los Angeles police investigator. Over time, Sid finds himself in a new partnership with Nancy McKenna, a working mother with a complex past. Nancy seems to be a woman with an unrecognized lifestyle that hides a larger personal secret. Over time, the two women find themselves at a critical juncture when it comes to confronting the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles, where they must cooperate more.
L.A.'s Finest quickly sinks into mediocrity, unable to offer the same kind of big-screen thrills in a weekly format, or find much of anything new to say about odd couples and pasts that won't stay hidden.
