PREMIERE: BACKSTROM With Rainn Wilson To Premiere January 22nd on FOX

Self-Destructive. Judgemental. Indulgent. And The Way He Solves Crimes Is Almost Criminal. Backstrom will air after American Idol on Thursday nights next year, premiering on January 22nd.  That’s a pretty good if highly competitive time slot on FOX for Hart Hanson’s new “crime-dy”, starring The Office’s Rainn Wilson as brilliant but boorish Portland Detective Everett Backstrom, who returns to work five years after being kicked out for offensive behaviour. It’s up to members of his newly-formed Serious Crimes Unit like Detective Nicole Gravely (Genevieve Angelson) to handle his oafishness and make sure his unorthodox methods hold up in court.
