Jeff Wattrick and Allan Lengel sit down with Detroit Police Investigator and "Low Winter Sun" consultant Ira Todd, who dishes about what's true to life and what's embellished for television.

"I think they're capturing a part of the city," he says.

Todd says he asked the show's creators: "Do you want to see real Detroit or do you want to see what everybody else wants you to see? And they said show me real Detroit."
