Just the other day, I saw promos for the USA Network’s “Fairly Legal” TV show, which just happens to star the gorgeous Sarah Shahi, formerly Detective Dani Reese on NBC’s criminally canceled “Life” cop show. On that show, Shahi co-starred alongside Damian Lewis, who was playing a wrongly convicted cop who gets released from prison and becomes a Zen Detective.

So anyways, USA Network has been promoting “Fairly Legal” pretty hard on their network (the cable net does a wonderful job of getting the word out on their new shows), and I started to wonder whatever happened to her former co-star Damian Lewis?

Claire Danes Finds A Homeland

18 November 2010 4:04 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The last time there was any major news about Homeland, the new big drama pilot from Us cable channel Showtime, it was the fact that the executives were trying to convince Ben Affleck to direct it. That task clearly failed, since Lie director Michael Cuesta has the job, but they did get one name they were after – Claire Danes will take a lead role.Homeland is being loosely adapted from an Israeli series called Prisoners of War by former 24 writing/producing collaborators Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa. The basic plot finds two Us soldiers going missing during the 2003 invasion of Baghdad. One of them turns up years later in Afghanistan after a drone attacks an Al Qaeda settlement. Though he’s given a hero’s welcome back in the States, he has to deal with the after-effects of his experiences.Plus there’s a troubled CIA agent named Carrie Anderson »
