Josh Groban and Tony Danza Star in a New TV Series

Josh Groban and Tony Danza Star in a New TV Series

He starred on Broadway Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, now Josh Groban has landed his first leading TV role in Netflix’s “The Good Cop.” Don’t expect any singing or dancing on the show, but I can bet that behind the scenes there will be plenty of musical moments. Josh’s co-star is “Who’s The Boss”, Tony Danza. The two play father and son, Tony Sr. and Tony Jr. (TJ), who live together but couldn’t be more different. In this series based on an Israeli show of the same name, Dad is a disgraced former cop who did not follow the rules while TJ is a straitlaced detective who always follows the rules.

It’s quite a shift for the popular pop opera star who earned a 2017 Tony Award best actor in a musical nomination for his Broadway debut in “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”

Andy Breckman, created the show, took Groban out to a diner in New York, bought him pancakes, and convinced the singer it was the next step in his career.

Groban has also released the track list to his upcoming eighth studio album Bridges, set to be released September 21st. The album will feature the singles “Granted” and “Symphony,” as well as some exciting duets with Andrea Bocelli, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, and Sarah McLachlan.

The album will be released in two versions. Both will include “River” and the uplifting “Bigger Than Us,” but only the deluxe edition of the album will feature Groban’s rendition of Billy Joel’s “She’s Always A Woman,” as well as three other tracks.
