Trivia

When a show begins, the main cast usually signs for five years. According to creator Rod Lurie, Donald Sutherland didn't want to commit for that long, so he and Lurie made a deal. Ironically, the show got canceled after just one season. See more »

The Commander in Chief;
28 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gena Davis anchors the Commander In Chief with her remarkable, nuanced acting skills; if the writing stays as top notch as it was in the season opener,and if the supporting cast is developed with the complexity suggested in the season's opener, this show should prove to be a provocative drama; it will be interesting to note if, as with the West Wing, the story lines sometimes reflect contemporary or recent events... hopefully the writers will challenge the viewers out of status quo mindsets, where the idea of being American has become too facile.....the show, I hope, will gradually draw a large audience despite the fierce competition at that time slot from other networks.....Good luck to the creators and writers of Commander In Chief!
