Here's your first look at Blair Underwood in NBC's reboot of 1960s/1970s crime drama series Ironside

Here's the network's official description of the series:

In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one's tougher than Detective Robert Ironside. He's a fearless cop who won't stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists will do whatever it takes to solve New York's most difficult and notorious crimes - even if it means breaking the rules. Tough, sexy and acerbic, Ironside's never been afraid to call it like he sees it. As a detective, his instincts are second to none, and those around him have to stay on their toes if they want to keep up... because when his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, Ironside swore he'd never let a damn wheelchair slow him down.

NBC has officially set the hour-long drama's time slot for Wednesdays at 10pm. We won't really know what it'll be going up against during that hour until we see what all the other networks have on schedule from 10pm - 11pm on Wednesdays.

The cast includes Spencer GrammerBrent SextonPablo SchreiberNeal Bledsoe, and Kenneth Choi.

The series is written and exec produced by Michael Caleo (Rescue MeThe Sopranos), and exec produced by David Semel, Teri WeinbergJohn Davis, and Jon Fox.

2 clips and a couple of stills have surfaced, and all are embedded below (poster art above):

    I hope they keep the original music by Quincy Jones.

    Blair is a sweetheart, he's had longevity in the biz for a reason. I love that he'll be on the screen again, but I too am also somewhat disheartened by the material. Once again the black male character will be "neutered and safe", this time confined to a chair.

    If you've ever seen Murderball, you'll know that guys in wheelchairs are not neutered and safe.

    While seniors are not a desirable advertising demographics, they will tune into this show. Although, I'd prefer to see an actor who is actually confined to a wheelchair to play this role.

    Blair has had a development deal with NBC for years and they have yet to give him decent material. The brother is talented, but c'mon. A remake of a 40 year old cop show? *SMH*
