Fox arrested a sizable 6.1 million total viewers with Monday’s premiere of “Apb.” Partnering with lead-in “24: Legacy,” the broadcaster finished in second place overall across primetime. “Apb,” a police drama with a high-tech twist, starring Justin Kirk (“Weeds”), was remarkably steady with the latest version of “24,” which enjoyed its own debut late Sunday night. Both shows scored a 1.5 rating/5 share in the key 18-49 demographic, with “24: Legacy” roping in 77,000 more overall viewers than the drama behind it did. ABC and “The Bachelor” won the night in the main demo. CBS claimed total viewers for the hours »

At first glance, it’s easy to mistake Justin Kirk’s fictional character on Fox’s new drama Apb for a certain real-life character. After all, his Gideon Reeves is a charismatic billionaire who wants to institute law and order on his own terms because he isn’t great about taking input from others. The way Kirk sees it, however, he wanted to play Reeves because of the guy’s similarities to a very different wealthy crime fighter.

In recent years, Fox has unveiled cop dramas starring robots, Houdini and a magically preserved Ichabod Crane. But “Apb” may be the network’s most fantastical foray yet.
“Apb” chronicles a billionaire’s takeover of an urban police district, and posits that what will fix the problems with American policing is not more accountability but less. Suffice it to say there’s a lot of wishful thinking on display, and not much in the way of watchable substance when it comes to the cases of the week.
There is a certain amount of self-awareness in “Apb”: Justin Kirk, who plays Gideon Reeves, the wealthy man who privatizes policing in part of Chicago, is a very skilled actor, and he gives his character the kind of nuance that allows Reeves to be more than a Silicon Valley stereotype. That said, aside from an underused Ernie Hudson, much of the cast around Kirk is far less compelling, and »

The self-taught sibling directors were born and raised in the L.A. beach culture and started out making videos of top surfers. So when it came to tackle their second narrative feature — made 15 years after snowboard comedy “Out Cold” — it was no surprise that they chose “The Tribes of Palos Verdes,” a dysfunctional family drama set in a posh SoCal beachfront community.
However, from the start, the brothers wanted to make sure their narrative debut — a screenplay that passed through several directors’ hands during its nearly two decades of development — wasn’t overwhelmed by the surf element.
“Surfing is such an appealing thing to people from the outside, it’s so easy to sell it, and it’s so easy to get carried away in making a movie with this setting, because you get caught up in how cool everything looks when you’re out there,” says older brother Emmett. »
