A comic crime drama following an offensive, but brilliant, detective returned from exile to run a special crime unit.

Lieutenant Everett Backstrom is an unhealthy and offensive detective who is brought back from a five year exile to head Portland Police Bureau's Special Crimes Unit. Tasked with working the city's most serious cases, Backstrom utilizes his dark instincts and odd abilities to solve crimes while trying to improve his own self-destructive behavior.

I NEVER leave comments... But, I am so disappointed to find out that Backstrom is not being renewed! There are so many shallow, predictable "comedies" and variety shows to chose from and be bored with. Backstrom is witty, edgy, well scripted and the actors are fantastically cast! PLEASE reconsider!

The producers of this show to pitch it to USANetwork or TNT or FX. It is too gritty for broadcast TV. It would also benefit from a short (13 episode) run.
