Vince Gilligan's CBS Drama Battle Creek Photos Revealed

Since AMC's Breaking Bad wrapped up, fans of the series have been waiting to see what creator Vince Gilligan does next. CBS has the answer to that with their upcoming new police series Battle Creek, a drama that -- unfortunately -- won't make it onto the schedule until later in the season (presumably midseason). Battle Creek stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters as two mismatched cops who are teamed up to fight crime in Battle Creek, Michigan. CBS hasn't released a preview for the series (yet), but they have unveiled some photos, including the one above, which shows off Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters, and this one, which reveals some of the supporting cast...

Battle Creek Comes from Vince Gilligan and David Shore, along with Mark Johnson and Bryan Singer, all of whom are executive producing. Here's CBS's full synopsis:

BATTLE CREEK stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters in a drama about two mismatched law enforcement officers whose polar opposite views of the world and crime-solving breed frustration, disdain, humor and possibly a grudging respect as they team together to clean up the hardscrabble streets of Battle Creek, Mich. Det. Russ Agnew (Dean Winters), a good but gruff, hard-boiled detective, has his world upended when strikingly handsome, charismatic Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel) opens an FBI field office at the police station and chooses Russ to be his partner.Milt’s polished sophistication and access to unlimited state-of-the-art equipment is impressive to his new co-workers in the absurdly underfunded department. As Russ and Milt work long hours together in the economically distressed city of Battle Creek, the question is: will it be Milt’s charm and endless supply of high-end resources or Russ’s old-fashioned cynicism, guile and deception that prove to be the keys to catching the bad guys in his beloved hometown?

Hopefully CBS will give us a look at the trailer, but given the wait between now and the series' premiere, which may not be until 2015, they might be holding off on the preview for a little while. In the meantime, you can see all four of the pilot episode stills in the gallery below. CBS says Battle Creek will arrive later this season. Check out the full CBS 2014-2015 lineup here.
