Pilot Scoop: Ben McKenzie Snags Lead in CBS' Advocates – What Does this Mean for Southland?

Ben McKenzie CBS Pilot The Advocates

In a move that will no doubt raise questions about the future of Southland, Ben McKenzie has landed the co-lead in CBS’ drama pilot The Advocates, TVLine has learned.

The potential series, from Mentalist creator Bruno Heller, centers on the relationship between a female lawyer and a male ex-con (McKenzie), who team up as “victim advocates,” going to the very edge of the law to right wrongs and fight for the underdog.

McKenzie’s character, the quietly determined Henry Bird, is freed after being unjustly imprisoned for 16 years.

The cast also includes The Shield‘s CCH Pounder and NYPD Blue‘s Esai Morales.

Although the gig is technically in second position to Southland, the fact that Warner Bros. (which produces both shows) appears willing to roll the dice on McKenzie suggests there’s a reasonable chance the death-defying TNT cop drama won’t see a sixth season.

Of course, it’s also possible the show could continue on without McKenzie’s character, Officer Sherman. (He wouldn’t be the first Southland cop to die in the line of duty.)

Southland is currently three episodes into its fifth season.

Gotham is finally here. We've seen the posters, the ads and we think we know the world surrounding the city of Gotham. But try to put all those preconceptions on a shelf and dive into the world created by Bruno Hello (who is also the man who brought us The Mentalist). On Gotham Season 1, we won't be seeing Batman or Robin... at least in the form we know them. However, we will see a city that's in despair, overun by crime and villains. And rookie Jim Gordon, played by Ben McK ...

We either spend roughly a minute or less watching the intros to our favorite television shows each week, or we skip them (or run to get a snack) if they're terrible. Some series have the most annoying intros that make us cringe (hey, "Orange Is the New Black"), but there also exist a handful of really great ones that we look forward to watching every time. Here are some of our favori ...
