This series is dedicated to new shows coming this fall. I'll cover a show a day for the next month.
When: Mondays, 9:00 PM EST
Who: Donnie Wahlberg, Leslie Hope, Dustin Milligan, Sarah Ramos
Where: The CW
Think "The Fugitive," except with an entire family instead on Harrison Ford. It's about a family whose father was unjustly accused of a violent crime. The family is hiding under assumed names in, well, Iowa, while dear old dad searches for the evidence to clear his name.
Good ol' Donnie. Older brother to one Mark Wahlberg, and former boy band star of NKOTB, he's actually strung together a pretty impressive acting career. He's really the only character of note. I think Leslie Hope was in Commander-in-Chief, and we all saw how that turned out.
Projected Longevity of the Show:
Strike one: it's on the CW.
Strike two: it's a boring plot, similar to a movie that came out last year that was so unmemorable I don't remember the title.
Strike three: it's up against football.
This show is D.O.A. Or D.O.P(ilot), as the case may be.
Women: 1 out of 10
Men: 0 out of 10
There may be a a younger crowd that were huge NKOTB fans that still desperately would like to have sex with Wahlberg. I'm guessing not many though.
