On Thursday, Jan. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET) a new sheriff comes to town on the all-new police drama DEPUTY. From director/executive producer David Ayer (“Training Day,” “End of Watch,” “Suicide Squad”), DEPUTY brings the spirit of a classic Western and a gritty authenticity to the modern cop drama.

When the Los Angeles County’s Sheriff dies, an arcane rule forged back in the Wild West thrusts the most unlikely man into the job: a fifth-generation lawman (Stephen Dorff, “True Detective”), more comfortable taking down bad guys than navigating a sea of politics, who won’t rest until justice is served. DEPUTY also stars Yara Martinez (“Jane the Virgin,” “The Tick”), Brian Van Holt (“Cougar Town”), Danielle Moné Truitt (“Snowfall”), Bex Taylor-Klaus (“13 Reasons Why”), Shane Paul McGhie (“Unbelievable”) and Mark Moses (“Desperate Housewives”).
