19-2, the cop show adapted from the French-language series of the same name, takes a non-sensationalized look at what it means to be a police officer today. It follows two beat officers, on and off duty, and addresses everything from the realities of foot patrol to corruption within the force.

Canadian actor Adrian Holmes stars in 19-2 as the strong-willed Nick Barron, who is often trying to navigate corruption in an effort to do the right thing.

Holmes talks to q host Tom Power about how 19-2 is different from the average cop show and what to expect as it enters its final season.

19-2 airs Sunday nights on Crave and Monday nights on CTV.
