According to EW, CBS “has cast Rainn Wilson in the leading role of Backstrom, a drama pilot that’s based on a Swedish detective series of same name about an overweight, offensive irascible cop as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior.” FINALLY, a gritty remake of Jake and the Fatman.
