The Mob Doctor Creator Scoops New Show, Teases Bones Crossover

17 September 2012 5:33 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

You may not think Drop Dead Diva when you watch tonight’s premiere of The Mob Doctor on Fox, but both shows share more than a little bit in common.

They each deal with matters of identity and truth; featured a female lead; and were created by Josh Berman.

Just how much is Dr. Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro) an anti-hero as she’s reluctantly pulled into the mob world? Will Grace find parts of the mob addictive? Because the show follows Bones, a crossover episode seems like a no-brainer, right? To get answers to those questions and more, TV Fanatic’s Jim Halterman sat down with Berman recently to dig deep into The Mob Doctor...


TV Fanatic: Identity. Secrets. Between The Mob Doctor and Drop Dead Diva, I see a few similarities, even though they’re such different worlds.

Junk TV Round-Up: Burn Notice, Mob Doctor, Criminal Minds, Transporter

14 June 2012 9:45 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

All right, you buncha undercooked couch potatoes, limber up your DVR and pretend like you don’t need any friends, it’s time for more junk TV.

Sleeper hit Burn Notice has its sixth season premiere tonight, and I’m betting the suits over at the USA Network haven’t been this pleased since they dug Silk Stalkings out of CBS’s garbage.  Series creator Matt Nix had a chat with the good folks over at TVLine and he explains that this will be a very different season.  Which, yes, every series creator says before a premiere, but I think Nix actually means it this time.  As you may (or may not) recall, the end of last season found the sweet(?) and precious(!) Fiona in the slammer after she turned herself in for blowing up the consulate.  This canny move totally threw a monkey wrench in Anson’s plans (Jere Burns, »
