Backstrom, the new series from the creator of FOX’s long-lived Bones, is a procedural that features a despicable, alcoholic, lazy, yet brilliant detective – the Backstrom of the title – played by Rainn Wilson. Yup, he sounds like Gregory House as a cop – but he may be even less functional outside business hours.
Backstrom is coming soon to FOX. Check out the new teaser after the jump.
For the past month, the CW Network has been heavily hyping their new drama series, Life Unexpected, which premieres on Monday January 18th at 8PM EST right before an all new episode of season 7 of One Tree Hill.
Life Unexpected, which is written and produced by Liz Tigelaar (“Brothers and Sisters,” “What About Brian”), Janet Leahy (“Boston Legal,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Gary Fleder (“October Road”), is the story of 15-year-old Lux (Britt Robertson, “Swingtown”), who, after spending her life bouncing from one foster family to another, has decided it’s time to become an emancipated minor. Her journey through the legal maze leads Lux to her biological parents, Nate “Baze” Bazile (Kristoffer Polaha, “Mad Men”) and Cate Cassidy (Shiri Appleby, – Roswell, E.R.). When a judge unexpectedly grants temporary joint custody to Baze and Cate, they agree to make a belated attempt to give Lux the family she deserves.
