Ashley Judd has a winner here! She is an intense actress and has chosen an excellent series to produce! While it is true that this appears to have very similar story line to Liam Neesom's movie, this plot can go anywhere as the series progresses. ABC has a good one with lots of promise! It is certainly a breath of fresh air considering all of the brain-dead shows that are run as reality TV. In addition, most of the series that have long runs have the same story lines with different characters acting out the plots. ABC has chosen a good one that is pure adult entertainment and has plot twists and turns that will require something better than the concentration of a third grader. I am looking forward to the next episode...and the next, etc. Ashley Judd is a very good actress who does her own stunts (according to her recent interview) and always leaves me wanting to see her again!
