Tony Danza, who achieved TV fame as Tony Banta in Taxi and Tony Micelli in Who’s the Boss? (not to mention as Tony Canetti in Hudson Street and Tony DiMeo in the Tony Danza Show), will return as Tony Sr. in a 10-episode dramedy for Netflix called The Good Cop.
Netflix didn’t announce a launch date.
Tony Sr., described as “a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules,” lives with his son, Tony Jr., a by-the-book NYPD detective. The older Tony “offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.”
Monk creator Andy Breckman will be showrunner and executive producer.
“We’re excited to bring viewers the return of Tony Danza, one of television’s most beloved icons,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix.
Meanwhile, you can watch select episodes from all five season of Taxi, for free, on Yahoo. A broader episode library is available with paid subscriptions to Hulu and CBS.com. You can also stream the first season of Who’s the Boss for free on Crackle.
