The show is about six NYPD newbie cops who balance their personal lives with learning the mean streets of Manhattan. Goldberg plays Lazarus, a laid-off reporter turned rookie cop who still has his street connections and can pull in good intel. Rookies is executive produced by Robert DeNiro, Richard Price and Jane Rosenthal. Goldberg previously played a detective in ABC’s The Unusuals.
