Life & Journeyman Teasers

Make way for more European invasion...I guess it's because Hugh Laurie is such a hit playing an American doctor, two more non-American actors will lead in their own series this coming September.

"Meet Detective Charlie Crews. Behind him sit tough years of hard prison time for a crime he didn’t commit. Ahead of him lie the challenges of a world that’s moved on without him. Now it’s time to walk through the painful cobwebs of his past and re-enter the scorn-filled halls of a job he loves. It’s no easy task, especially when his reluctant new partner is as jaded as Dani Reese. Charlie’s appreciation for life’s details not only offers up unique insights into each crime, it reminds us of all the little things we take for granted"

I am not exactly optimistic about this show. And I am a fan of Damien Lewis for his work in Band of Brothers. I am not so sure about this one. I'm confused about the teasers...did they attempt to make this one funny? Not buying it.


"Dan Vasser thought he had it all: a loving wife, a great son and a steady job. But life suddenly throws him a curve ball. Dan finds himself traveling into the past with a purpose – impacting people's lives for the better – and sometimes the worse. While doing so, Dan reconnects with Livia Beale, his ex-fiancĂ©e, whom he lost in a mysterious plane crash. Now armed with the knowledge of the present, will he be able to save her? What would that mean to his own future? And how would it change a man who thought he had it all?"

Kevin McKidd was the central character in the HBO series Rome. This time he plays an average American family man. The scene from this teaser looks intense. It felt Soprano-ish for some reason. Hmmm...

These shows will be airing on NBC in September.
