Trivia

On the feature documentary Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show (2014), creator Matthew Carnahan reveals that his original pitch of the show didn't had a female lead character. Because FX was looking for shows with women as center characters, Carnahan agreed to rewrite it to create Lucy Spiller and work with Courteney Cox. The creator says this was the first of several concessions he made on the show, and described his relationship with FX's President and General Manager, John Landgraf, as difficult, to the point that he hasn't seen the second season of the show, because it had changed so much.

There is potential...just potential...
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The endless previews for the show got me interested. And I found it interesting that I was interested because when a network advertises the crap out of a show, I'm easily bored. I thought I would give the show a chance because FX always seems to give us racy, dramatic, unique shows. And I wanted to see Courtney Cox as a bitchy, lost editor in a hot red dress. I'll admit it.

The pilot was a little rocky, but most pilots are. I try to never judge a television show by the first episode because it takes time to develop the story lines and characters. This show could easily find a groove if it wanted to.

Courtney was fitting in her roll. She's got the tough, commanding demeanor about her. But it still seems as though she hasn't completely found the character. But maybe that's how it is supposed to be right now in the show. I think her character has many places to go in time.

I found that the real star was Josh Stewart who plays a failing actor who finds himself sucked into the world of a "celebrity". Stewart is that smirky, doomed, lovable rebel that Jason Dohring recently made a career out of on "Veronica Mars." As I mentioned before, the show is on FX, so obviously there is a lot of sex. A lot. I think this is one of the weaknesses of the show. The softcore porn distracts from the plot and the sweet camera shots that are accompanied by great music. I doubt that will go away.

The show has a message. We live in a messed up world. We are all awful. But has the world become so despicable that there is no humanity left? I have hope for this show but it could easily suck. I'll give it a few more chances, though.
