WATCH "LEVERAGE" TOMORROW!
It's the COOLEST NEW SHOW on Television.
That's right, the fun starts tomorrow (Sunday, Dec. 7th) on TNT. It's a story about con artists who just might be fighting on the right side of the law... It's got an awesome cast! C'mon! Any show that has ANGEL's Christian Kane (wonder if his hand ever grew back?) and COUPLING/JEKYLL's supremely talented (and OH so gorgeous) Gina Bellman is a MUST WATCH. Oh. And there might be an Oscar winner on the show, too...
Yes. I'll fess up and admit that I have several good friends working on this show, so I'm a bit biased. But hey, I've already watched the pilot and would've continued to watch this show ever if it were written by strangers.
I think TNT might have another hit on their hands. And as a TV writer, I'm telling you... cable is a really exciting place to be these days. How many of your favorite shows are on the "other" networks these days? Lots of mine are: "Battlestar Galactica," "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia," "Weeds," "Eureka" (yes, I'm very much a fan, too!), etc. Don't get me wrong. I can't wait for the new seasons of "Lost" and "24," and I never miss "The Office." And I'm really looking forward to "Dollhouse." I'm also digging the new shows, "Fringe" and "Eleventh Hour."
Hmmm... did I mention I watch a lot of TV?
But I'm glad there are more Networks out there finding success. 1) It means more places writers and aspiring writers can find jobs. 2) It provides for more diverse programming for today's diverse audiences. And now more than ever, that's important for America.
Yes, it's a good time to turn on the TV. See you Sunday night.
PS: Yes... because I'm a TV junkie, I WILL be watching THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE beforehand, so there!
