LOS ANGELES — Josh Groban is adding the role of police detective to his TV resume.

Netflix said Wednesday that Groban will play a straight-laced New York City detective on “The Good Cop.”

The actor-singer will star opposite Tony Danza, who plays his father. Danza’s character, a disgraced NYPD officer, is the street-wise adviser to his cautious son.

Groban has appeared in a number of TV series, including “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “The Office.”

He made his Tony-nominated Broadway debut last year in “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.”

Andy Breckman, who created the series “Monk,” is an executive producer for “The Good Cop.”

A release date for the 10-episode comedy-drama series was not announced.
