Midseason is upon us! The following new shows will have their premieres in January 2013:
January 7 Monday
10:00/9:00c “Deception” (formerly: “Infamous”) Undercover detective investigates death in wealthy family.
Cast: Meagan Good, Tate Donovan, Victor Garber, Katherine LaNasa, Laz Alonso, Marin Hinkle, Ella Rae Peck.
Genre: Crime soap
Preview: Pilot is available on Hulu and here.
Forecast: No show of this type ever succeeded long term. If the first 15 minutes of the show (featuring one of the worst displays of acting this season) doesn’t scare people off then unlikable characters and flat writing should.
Competes in schedule with: Castle and Hawaii Five-O
January 10 Thursday
9:30/8:30c “1600 Penn” Bill Pullman returns as PoTUS in comedy about dysfunctional family living in the White House.
Cast: Bill Pullman, Jenna Elfman, Josh Gad, Brittany Snow Martha MacIsaac, Andre Holland, Amara Miller.
Preview: Pilot available on Hulu to US internauts, everyone else click here for trailer
Forecast: By far, the best casted comedy this midseason. The trailer makes the show look atrociously bad, old school and unfunny, and terribly aging 31 year old Josh Gad thinks he can still play college students, but the pilot is actually not bad and definitely does not carry that last century “one laugh every three minutes” vibe the trailer implies. Pilot also breaks this year record of cameo appearances.
Competes in schedule with: Person Of Interest, Glee
January 11 Friday
[Cinemax] 10:00/9:00c “Banshee“ An ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he continues his criminal activities, while he’s hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier. 10 episode initial order.
Cast: Antony Starr, Ben Cross, Cedric Stewart, Frankie Faison, Ivana Miličević, Rus Blackwell.
Preview: Click here for trailer and full pilot episode is available on YouTube
Genre: Action drama
Forecast: Creator of ‘True Blood” is behind it. Lead’s uncanny resemblance to Sam Worthington might help.
Competes in schedule with: Blue Bloods
