Gimme Some Series #1: September
NEW: Revolution (17 September)
From the minds of Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and JJ Abrams (writer/director/producer of endless hits) comes a new series directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man). In a post-apocalyptic world, a family struggles reunite and discover what has happened 15 years after a mysterious event has rendered every bit of technology from lights to cars useless.
This series will either work damn well or fail miserably, but the brains behind it and the actors, including Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) & Billy Burke (Drive Angry, Twilight), give me some hope.
Season 2: Homeland (30 September)
Mentally unstable CIA agent Carrrie Mathison (Claire Danes), haunted by her failure to anticipate 9/11, worries that a rescued POW (Damian Lewis) may be planning a terrorist attack.
Season 3: Boardwalk Empire (16 September)
Chronicles the legendary story of Atlantic City’s rise to a gambling mecca. Written by Terence Winter (Sopranos) and produced by Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson (Entourage)
Season 2: Revenge (30 September)
Loosely based on The Count of Monte Christo, this is a tale of a rich young woman’s revenge on those who ruined her late father’s life years ago.
NEW: Last Resort (27 September)
The crew of an American submarine defies orders to flatten Pakistan with nuclear weapons and become targets themselves. The crew escapes to a tropical island, declares the island a sovereign nuclear state, and look for ways to prove their innocence.
Season 6: The Big Bang Theory (27 September)
The hit series returns for it’s 6th season.
