“No Activity” (CBS All Access, Series Premiere) - Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, this new series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space, considering they’ve only just met. Patrick Brammall and Tim Meadows star in this show produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
