Since time immemorial, the world has witnessed people who dare to break the governing rules of the ever-evolving society. These people go beyond the law, which ensures a cat-and-mouse chase between these lawbreakers and law enforcers. Based on these never-ending chases, Hollywood has produced numerous films and series.
Since the audience finds these series unusually fascinating, the enormous catalog of English series has a separate section for police-procedural crime drama shows. As a part of this catalog, we have Alexi Hawley’s 2018 creation- The Rookie. Set in Los Angeles, the series is a one-of-its-kind dramedy series of self-realization and motivates us to go limitless for our passion.
The Rookie: Synopsis
Created by Alexi Hawley, The Rookie follows the journey of John Nolan, a 45-year old divorced man. Hailing from Pennsylvania, John is an owner of a construction company and a father of a college-going son. After his recent divorce, John feels aimless and in life and wishes he had an opportunity to be a part of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). Fate knocked on his door soon enough when he successfully helped officers of LAPD during a bank robbery.
After this life-changing incident, he decided to move to Los Angeles with his son. There he got himself enrolled in the Police Academy, and in due time, he graduated from the Academy as the oldest rookie in the LAPD. After surviving the Police Academy, John must now work with utmost diligence to survive the dangerous criminals of the city and the demanding nature of his job. John’s dream is now his career, and he must work towards living that dream for as long as he can.
