ADAM Ro­driguez knows how to wear a po­lice uni­form. He also knows how to take one off … as we learnt when he joined Chan­ning Ta­tum’s male-strip­per dream team in the hit movie Magic Mike.

Ro­driguez is let­ting it all hang out again in Magic Mike XXL, now shoot­ing in the US state of Ge­or­gia. But given it won’t hit cin­e­mas un­til July, for now our best chance at see­ing Ro­driguez com­bine hot and steamy with law en­force­ment is his new show Reck­less.

Cre­ator of the se­ries Dana Stevens hopes Reck­less fol­lows in the foot­steps of NYPD Blue, a show that “broke ground with sex­i­ness on net­work TV”.

The hot part is a given, as the show is set in the South. The steamy part is down to the love tri­an­gle be­tween Ro­driguez (play­ing a cop, Preston Cruz), Anna Wood (as feisty at­tor­ney Jamie Sawyer) and Cam Gi­gan­det (as Jamie’s court­room op­po­nent, Roy Ray­der).

“Preston is a de­tec­tive who has moved down to South Carolina from New York for rea­sons un­known at the start of the show,” Ro­driguez ex­plains. “Lit­tle by lit­tle, you get to see more of why I chose to go see what the South was all about.

“Part of that was (Jamie’s) beau­ti­ful face. She’s ac­tu­ally my girl­friend and is toy­ing with my heart, while a sep­a­rate heat is brew­ing on the side be­tween her and a cer­tain hand­some some­one.”

That Ro­driguez has cho­sen to play a cop so soon after serv­ing 10 years as Eric Delko on CSI: Mi­ami may sur­prise some, but the New Yorker be­lieves Reck­less packs a dif­fer­ent punch.

“I’m get­ting a chance to do some­thing here that I didn’t for so long play­ing a cop on a pro­ce­dural show.

“There’s so much more depth to the char­ac­ters.You will see all of that mixed to­gether along with the steam and the sex and the heat.”
