  • show Description
  • The Division is a drama about a team of Felony Division police officers in the San Francisco Police Department headed by Captain Kate McCafferty (Bonnie Bedelia) that includes glimpses into their personal lives. In the first season of the show, Lela Rochon played Angela Reid, a happily married woman who has trouble getting along with her partner C.D. DeLorenzo, (Tracey Needham), an unhappily married woman with a cheating husband. Also, Lisa Vidal's character, Magda, a single mother, spends the first half of the first season trying to avoid a relationship with her partner Peter. Finally, in the second half of the first season after Peter leaves the Division, Magda teams up with Jinny Exstead (Nancy McKeon), a drug and alcohol addict who is struggling to keep her job, while she deals with an ex-boyfriend (and the father of her son) who wants back into her life. After the first season, Angela left the Division and C.D. got sarcastic and cynical Nate Basso (Jon Hamm) as a new partner. Also, Raina Washington (Taraji Henson) brought new spirit to the Division in season two with her inspiring attitude about the cases they solved. After getting shot in the season three finale, C.D. resigned from the Division because she couldn't handle the job anymore. Through the help of family, friends, and rehab, Jinny was able to end her alcohol and drug addictions in season 3. Stacy Reynolds (Amy Jo Johnson) was hired by Kate to be her police services aid in the season four premiere. The Division is an inspiring and suspenseful show that is fun to watch and keeps you guessing until the very end. Lifetime Broadcast History January 2001-December 2002-Sunday 8P.M.

    • When Jinny and Magda are assessing the crime scene and turn to go down the hill, Magda is removing her latex gloves. As the step under the police tape and head down the hill with their backs to us... you can clearly see that both of Magda's gloves are once again in place... oops!

  • A show that could have gone on for years...

    By RoxieVelma, Jan 28, 2006

  • The Division is truly the best police show ever brought to television.

    By factsoflife7, Aug 09, 2005

  • The Division was the best cop show ever and it is truly a shame that it got cancelled. With its fantastic cast (with the exception of the abominable Jon Hamm) and great writing, it had 4 great seasons.
