30 Days of Television - Day 08

A show everyone should watch

Okay I'm cheating... kinda... I haven't seen this show yet, no one outside of the industry has. It won't air until sometime "mid season" on NBC... but seriously - EVERYONE needs to watch.

Basically because I want high ratings so it gets picked up for a full REGULAR season (or at the very least a second season in the same slot). Why, you ask? Check out the third guy in the photo above... get it now? Yeah, it's Michael Raymond-James' new show. And dang it! I want it to succeed!

It is not my typical show. It sounds super dark and the cast has suggested they'll be pushing the envelope for broadcast television. Knowing, really, only MRJ's filmography it sounds right up his alley... but not really mine. But I'm stoked for it anyway. Because the casting looks great and the story is intriguing. (Actually the only thing that I've seen that I so far don't like is... well... MRJ's hair... what the heck is going on with that?! LOL)

The plot from NBCUniversal & Sony reads:
Carol Mendelsohn, executive producer and architect of the CSI phenomenon, presents a gripping new drama about a successful Atlanta attorney (David Lyons, "Revolution") whose long-lost childhood friends unexpectedly reappear after 25 years. When a dark secret they thought they'd buried resurfaces, the brotherhood bands together to right the wrongs of their shared past - a journey that will push the limits of their loyalty and quench their thirst for revenge.
The show filmed their pilot towards the end of spring, and is now in hiatus until late summer to film the rest of the episodes. So, really, there's not much info on the show floating around. But the cast has been, for the most part, very active on twitter keeping the buzz going. Both the adult cast and the teen actors playing the younger versions of the main characters.

So EVERYONE WATCH THIS SHOW. At least give it a try. For me. Because, reasons.
