Football Cops premiered on DIR in fall 2011. Two former pro football players bring their unique brand of law enforcement to one of the country's toughest neighborhoods. Mike Tahoe was living the dream as a big league quarterback, until a personal tragedy brought him back to the mean streets of his childhood. Vowing to bring those who wronged him to swift justice, he enlists the help of his best friend, and biggest rival, C.J. Hunter. Both grew up together as orphans in a home for wayward boys. Both overcame the odds to become huge sports stars. Now both are the only hope for the rugged streets they once again call home.
