Showtime (2002)
All that no-nonsense LAPD detective Mitch Preston asks is that he be left alone to do his job. Patrol Officer Trey Sellars is a different story. Instead of being a cop, he would much rather play one on TV. One night Trey stumbles into an undercover operation in progress, blowing Mitch's chance of nailing a drug dealer. At the same time, a television news crew barges in on the action. In frustration, Mitch fires a shot at the camera, which lands his photo on the front page of every newspaper and earns him an official reprimand. Knowing a sure ratings draw when she sees one, network television producer Chase Renzi swoops in and sells the Chief of Police on the PR benefits of letting her crew follow Mitch around the clock for a live reality show about cops. For Mitch it's a chance to beat suspension from the force. But the deal comes with one catch -- Mitch must team up with a more charismatic and camera-ready partner -- Trey.
