Big Dogs is a new US crime thriller series set in New York City, based on the book Rivers of Gold by Adam Dunn.

In this alternate urban reality, businesses are shuttered, crime is rampant, black markets thrive. Drugs are run via taxis and NYPD detectives use taxis for undercover teams trying to rein in the chaos.

Big Dogs producers have chosen The Verlaines' tracks 'Lucky In My Dreams' from the album Way Out Where and 'Angela' from the album Juvenilia as musical backdrops for scenes in this gritty adaptation.
