Pacino Cops Series Episode 1

Who can trust a cop (or podcaster) who won’t take money?

Al Pacino is best known for playing gangsters, but this summer Now Playing Platinum Level donors will discover how explosively the actor administers justice in five major cop roles. The fun starts with the 1973 biopic Serpico. Al stars as a real life New York City police officer who got a bullet in the face instead of a promotion when he blew the whistle on widespread department corruption. Will Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart condemn the system for passing over Pacino for a Best Actor Oscar yet again?  It all comes out in the wash when you Donate Today.

Frank Serpico is an idealistic New York City cop who refuses to take bribes, unlike the rest of the force. His actions get Frank shunned by the other officers, and often placed in dangerous situations by his partners. When his superiors ignore Frank's accusations of corruption, he decides to go public with the allegations. Although this causes the Knapp Commission to investigate his claims, Frank has also placed a target on himself.
