Detectives Travis Marks and Wes Mitchell are the top team in the LAPD Homicide division, but after five years as partners, the laid-back ladies man and the methodical former lawyer are at each other's throats. When one argument too many leads to probation, Captain Phil Sutton takes a novel approach to try and save their flagging partnership: he sends Travis and Wes to couples counseling.
While Travis and Wes certainly do have their issues - Travis bounced from foster home to foster home as a child, and Wes hasn't quite accepted the fact that his decision to join the police force caused his ex-wife Alex to divorce him - they aren't exactly receptive to the methods of their new therapist, Dr. Emma Ryan. However, Captain Sutton makes it clear that the only way they're going to keep their jobs is if they stick with the counseling and learn to work together.
But when the high profile murder of a Senator's son lands in their laps, Travis and Wes soon learn that juggling casework with therapy isn't easy. And as the details of the case take them from Skid Row to Beverly Hills, the tension between the two detectives surges towards a boiling point until it finally explodes at the worst possible time - in front of the D.A.
Suspended, Travis and Wes realize that if they want to solve the case and keep their jobs, they just may have to have to ignore their differences and give this therapy thing a real shot.
