The show could be dumb as rocks but we’d still watch it for Gabriella Pession
“Crossing Lines” is NBC’s new crime drama, and the gimmick is that the cops are elite international badasses who track down villains in other countries. Whatever. It’s an excuse to have an Italian cop on it, and we don’t mean some fatso named Anthony behind a desk chowing down donuts and referring to black people as animals. That’s a New York Italian cop.
