Michael Cudlitz: (when asked by a Chicago Sun-Times columnist Cindy Pearlman if he gets feedback on his role on Southland from real cops) I'd say about 98 percent of the feedback I get from real cops is positive. We show it as accurately as possible. We're probably the most accurate cop show on the air other than an episode of Cops. Yet some of the real cops are negative about the show and criticize because it's too real. They don't want their personal stuff portrayed. But these guys have complicated lives. I guess no one wants anything bad about them on TV. I remind them that it's a one-hour drama and not a documentary.
