It was the groundbreaking series that broke the rules and raised the bar for television drama, developing an enormous fan following in the process. Over the course of its 12-year run, NYPD Blue garnered an amazing 84 Emmy® Award nominations and an impressive 20 wins. The show revolved around a squad of New York City police detectives who devoted themselves to the pursuit of justice while struggling to maintain a sense of humanity.
