Fall's cop out



The Cincinnati Enquirer

Not all of the 17 new fall TV dramas are law enforcement shows, it just seems that way.

More than a dozen have police themes, including CBS' Navy CIS and Cold Case, NBC's Las Vegas, WB's Tarzan and ABC's 10-8, Threat Matrix and Karen Sisco.

Daring to be different are:

The O.C. (Fox): A troubled inner-city Los Angeles teen (Benjamin McKenzie) moves in with a public defender (Peter Gallagher) and his family in affluent Orange County. Premieres Aug. 5.

One Tree Hill (WB): Two high school basketball players (Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty) compete for the same girl (Hilarie Burton, MTV's TRL) in a tiny North Carolina town.

Joan of Arcadia (CBS): God appears to a teenage girl (Amber Tamblyn) as a cafeteria cook, classmate and other human forms.

Miss Match (NBC): Alicia Silverstone stars as a divorce attorney with a knack for match-making.
