Television Premiere Travel: The Kops of K-Ville

Is it too soon to fictionalize the disaster wrought by Hurricane Katrina? Apparently not for Fox, which mines the tragedy for a cop drama which starts tonight. "K-Ville" stars Anthony Anderson as Marlin Boulet, a police officer who chose to stay when the flood waters rose. Two years later, he's still there, with a new partner (Cole Hauser) and new problems he couldn't have imagined before the levees broke.
Even if it doesn't deserve a full-season order (and it might not, according to some reviews), "K-Ville" has the advantage of location that makes it a show to watch. Shot entirely in New Orleans and endorsed by the New Orleans Police Department, the program tacitly acknowledges what the president refuses to: That the rebuilding of the Crescent City is still very much a work in progress.
