From Rand Ravich (“The Astronaut’s Wife”), Far Shariat (“Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”), and David Semel, who directed the pilot of NBC's "Heroes," "Life" is a new drama about a detective who is given a second chance. Damian Lewis ("Band of Brothers") stars as complex, offbeat Detective Charlie Crews, who, thanks to close friend and attorney Constance Griffiths (casting TBA), returns to the force after serving time in prison for a crime he didn't commit.

The cast also includes Sarah Shahi ("Rush Hour 3") as Charlie’s skeptical, demanding partner, Robin Weigart (HBO's "Deadwood") as their hard-hitting lieutenant, and Adam Arkin ("Chicago Hope") as Crews’ former cellmate Ted Early.
