NBC made a very big mistake in cancelling "Ironside" after only three episodes.  The network clearly did not give this quality primetime show a chance to build an audience.  "Ironside" debuted with a decent rating for this type of show, a mature drama.  Clearly, if given time, this show could be a major hit for the network.

Thus, we have launched a SAVE IRONSIDE campaign to convince NBC to give this show another chance.  They should air the shows they have in the can and begin production of new shows.  We will not stop our campaign until this show is back on the air.

NBC's Description of "Ironside"
In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one's tougher than Det. Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood, "In Treatment"). He is fearless; his instincts are second to none, and those around him must stay on their toes if they want to keep up. When his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, he swore he'd never let a wheelchair slow him down.

Ironside and his trusted, handpicked team of detectives each offer a unique background, perspective and skill set. Comprising the team are Virgil (Pablo Schreiber, "The Wire"), a man who wrestles with the dichotomy of being one of NYPD's toughest cops in the city, yet a loving family man at home where he imparts life lessons to his children that he does not necessarily follow in the line of duty; Holly (Spencer Grammer, "Greek"), a strong, feisty detective who loves the rush of being undercover and the danger that goes with the job and who has mysterious family ties to the Brooklyn underworld; and Teddy (Neal Bledsoe, "Smash"), a rich, highly-educated young cop who has never been good with authority and is connected in a way that only those born into wealth enjoy.
Their boss, Capt. Ed Rollins (Kenneth Choi, "Sons of Anarchy"), calm and pragmatic, handles situations with a level head and cool demeanor. He and Ironside share a mutual respect and admiration for each other despite their push-pull relationship.

Also in the mix is Gary (Brent Sexton, "The Killing"), Ironside's scrappy ex-partner and a hard-nosed detective who marvels at Ironside's will and ability to piece together his life after being shot.

  1. Great background history!!! It was on so briefly, most people did not have the chance to figure out the relationships of the cast. This is a wonderfully written drama series and deserves a fair chance for America to discover it. !0:00 pm EST on a Wednesday night isn't easy - lots of competition and for many, they are just getting in from activities!
