USA Network’s two-hour film Nash Bridges has been given a Thanksgiving weekend premiere date. It wll debut on Saturday, Nov. 27.
The movie brings back original cast members Don Johnson and Cheech Marin as elite investigators for the San Francisco Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit.

Produced by Village Roadshow Television, which also controls rights to the original series created by Carlton Cuse, the film was written by Bill Chais and directed by Greg Beeman.
Johnson, Chais and Beeman executive produce alongside Cuse, who was not creatively involved in the film.
Nash Bridges originally ran for six seasons (1996-2001) on CBS.
