The staff at TV Squad put together a list of things to watch in 2011. A couple of things caught my eye.
First, Maggie Furlong on the new show The Chicago Code:
This gritty, action-packed take on cops-and-robbers stars Jason Clarke as a veteran Chicago cop, Matt Lauria as his green new partner, Jennifer Beals as the boss lady and Delroy Lindo as the local politician they’re all convinced is corrupt. The backdrop of Chicago — with its history of mob activity and gorgeous skyline — only adds to an already compelling story.
From what I have heard so far, The Chicago Code is goign to be a good one and I am looking forward to it.
Chris Harnick had a move abstract concept surrounding any future work Maura Tierney gets:
Give Maura a few months to lick her wounds following the premature cancellation of ‘The Whole Truth,’ but after that she needs to be back on TV ASAP. The ‘ER’ veteran is a master actor, she either deserves a show of her own, or to join the cast of an established hit. She can play comedy and drama equally as flawlessly. Perhaps ‘The Office’ has found its new boss, or a new female foil for Alicia Florrick on ‘The Good Wife.’
I love Tierney and was devastated when breast cancer kept her from the female lead in Parenthood. I was excited for The Whole Truth and still have all the episodes on DVR but haven’t watched them yet. After it approached cancellation I waited it out and I will watch it someday.
