Leverage

Pilot is out in all the usual places

TNT has given the greenlight to the thrilling, action-packed drama series "Leverage," starring Oscar winner Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People, "Nero Wolfe") and executive-produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, TNT's "The Librarian") and John Rogers ("Cosby").

The series follows a team of thieves, hackers and grifters who act as modern-day Robin Hoods, taking revenge against those who use power and wealth to victimize others. TNT has ordered 13 episodes of "Leverage".

"'Leverage' is great entertainment," said Michael Wright, senior vice president in charge of the content creation group for TNT, TBS and TCM. "It's fast-paced, smart and just great fun. Dean Devlin directed the pilot to perfection. Timothy Hutton is outstanding, and he and the cast around him have a great chemistry. This is a new genre for us in our series efforts, and it's great to be able to tackle it with Dean. His 'Librarian' movies for TNT have been huge successes. We couldn't be happier having him and John Rogers bring that same sense of style and storytelling to us in series form."

In "Leverage," Hutton plays former insurance investigator Nate Ford, a once-loyal corporate employee who had recovered millions of dollars in stolen goods for his employer. But when that employer denied his son's insurance claims and allowed the boy to die, he realized he could no longer work for such an entity.

Out of work and descending into alcoholism, Ford is hired by an aeronautics executive to recover airplane designs the executive claims were stolen by a rival company. Helping him are four highly skilled team members: Parker (Beth Riesgraf, Alvin and the Chipmunks), an expert thief; Alex Hardison (Aldis Hodge, "Friday Night Lights"), a specialist in Internet and computer fraud; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane, "Into the West"), a high-octane "retrieval specialist" who can take out a gang of henchmen without breaking a sweat; and Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman, "Coupling"), a grifter who could win awards for her acting skills during difficult scams. At first the newly formed team is hesitant to trust each other after so many years working alone but being double-crossed changes the dynamic, ultimately forcing them to unite. They emerge from the job realizing they are far better working together than apart. Once they discover they can trust each other the group targets their cons toward the richest, the greediest and the most unjust.

Fear itself

Fear Itself (1st episode was June 5th so there should be a few about in the usual places)

You have nothing to fear but Fear Itself.

A horror/suspense anthology series, Fear Itself brings some of the genre's most respected writers and directors to the small screen.

Billed as a fun-filled ride of terror, Fear Itself is an anthology series of mini-horror movies. Each episode will deliver a different story of suspense and thrills.

In the same vein as Showtime's "Masters of Horror" and last summer's ABC anthology series "Masters of Science Fiction," this new show from NBC, Lionsgate, and Industry Entertainment has the Emmy-winning duo of Keith Addis and Andrew Deane to executive producer Fear Itself. 13 episodes, that promise to deliver memorable and horrifying moments, have been planned, each sporting an all-star lineup of directors and writers.

The Mentalist premiers September 23rd

THE MENTALIST stars Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor sharp skills of observation. Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned. Jane's role in cracking a series of tough high-profile cases is greatly valued by his fellow agents. However, no-nonsense Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon openly resists having Jane in her unit and alternates between reluctantly acknowledging Jane's usefulness and blasting him for his theatrics, narcissism and dangerous lack of boundaries. Lisbon's team includes agents Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby and rookie member Grace Van Pelt, who all think Jane's a loose cannon but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.
