《Life》这部电视剧用了一个极其简单的词语来作为标题，原本以为它反映的也是生活的琐事，但没想到是一部警匪剧……这部电视剧的主角是遭人诬陷、含冤入狱长达数年的Charlie Crews(Damian Lewis, “Band of Brothers”) 侦探。在红颜知己、律师Constance Griffiths(Melissa Sagemiller, “Sleeper Cell”)的帮助下，他终于洗脱罪名，重回警队。Charlie Crews个性复杂，做事不喜欢拘泥于规则，因此一开始与做事严谨、对一切事实都抱有怀疑态度的新搭档(Sarah Shahi, “Rush Hour 3”)总是搞不好关系。但两人联手破获了数起要案之后，对彼此的看法有了本质的改变。两人的上司(Robin Weigart, HBO's “Deadwood”)是一个硬派人物，让两人吃尽了苦头。此外，Charlie Crews的前任搭档Ted Early(Adam Arkin, “Chicago Hope”)仍然和Charlie的生活密不可分。(介绍转自天涯小筑)
