Tony Danza attends the "There's... Johnny!" Premiere during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival at SVA Theater on April 27, 2017 in New York City.

Who's the Boss and Taxi alum Tony Danza has signed on to star in The Good Cop, a 10-episode dramedy series on Netflix.

The show follows a father and son with links to the New York Police Department—and very different personalities. Danza will play the dad. Casting for the the younger lead has not yet been announced.

"We're excited to bring viewers the return of Tony Danza, one of television's most beloved icons," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said in a statement Monday. "The Good Cop is a funny, charming procedural series that we think our members will love."

"Many cop shows feature dark and provocative material: psycho-sexual killers, twisted, grim, flawed detectives. Many address the most controversial issues of the day. I watch a lot of them. God bless 'em all. But the show I want to produce is playful, family-friendly, and a celebration of old-fashioned puzzle-solving," added show creator Andy Beckman.
