Rainn Wilson is out of The Office and into police work in Backstrom, Fox’s midseason crime procedural created by Hart Hanson (Bones). Portland Detective Everett Backstrom had spent the past five years exiled to the Traffic Division, but now’s he back heading the Special Crimes Unit, which investigates the city’s most serious and sensitive cases — all while trying, and failing, to change his self-destructive behavior. The series is set to bow next year.
