“COMMON LAW, a comedic take on the buddy cop genre, centers on Wes Mitchell and Travis Marks, two cops with a problem … each other. As partners, they were LAPD’s dream team. Now Wes, a methodical former lawyer with a passion for cars, gardening and his ex-wife, and Travis, a maverick ladies’ man who served time in juvie, can’t stand each other. To revive their flagging professional relationship, their Captain sends them to couples therapy. We soon learn that a successful relationship or partnership doesn’t mean you have to like the same things; you just have to hate the same things.
