"Detroit 1-8-7" – the title uses a former California police code for homicide – is set to begin airing in September. The show is shot from the perspective of a documentary film crew tasked with shadowing Detroit homicide detectives. The pilot episode was shot in Atlanta, but producers plan to shoot future episodes in and around Detroit.

The vast majority of murders in Detroit are drug-related. It's not usually crazy people out killing random people. I haven't seen the show so I don't know all the details of it, but I hope it's statistically correct.
By the way, Detroit is voting for legalizing marijuana in November. My prediction is, within a few years, Detroit will be a hippy-town, peaceful with a low crime rate. Imagine everyone putting down their guns and picking up . . . something peaceful instead.

... Detroit just doesn't fit the "murder city" mode.
